Policy portal All policy portal

This policy portal provides a public interest perspective on the issues at stake and ongoing legislative debates in the field of financial regulation.

As major rules for financial institutions are set at the EU rather than national level, EU legislators play the key role. Adequate rules are of crucial importance, as the size, complexity and influence of the financial system have reached unprecedented levels. Challenges like digitalisation or accelerating climate change need to be addressed too. There is a long way to go to make finance truly serve the economy and society.

Policy brief – The Digital Euro: A Matter of Trust

In this policy brief, Finance Watch argues that for the Digital Euro project to be successful, the Digital Euro must be widely available to EU residents, be truly free of charge and easily accessible, as well as being built in a way that protects peoples’ privacy and personal data. The brief emphasises that while the Digital Euro can bring benefits to those living in the EU, it should not replace cash.
