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.
