The Commission has identified three main strands of further work to move a step closer to a genuine Single Market for financial services:

Increase consumer trust and empower consumers when buying services at home or from other Member States.

Reduce legal and regulatory obstacles affecting businesses when seeking to expand abroad.

Support the development of an innovative digital world which can overcome some of the existing barriers to the Single Market.

With this opinion the EESC takes the opportunity to comment on how the European market for retail financial services can be further opened up. The EESC welcomes that the Commission is on track and has an ambitious programme for implementing the Action Plan on Building a Capital Markets Union, also endorsing that consumers should be given the opportunity, whenever possible, to compare different products, so they can make an informed choice.
