While supporting the pilot project to set up a financial expertise centre for consumers and end-users of financial services, the EESC feels it would be useful to call for a number of conditions to be met: legitimacy, financial independence, transparency and accountability, public visibility, as well as balance between financial sector professionals and users.
Other relevant EESC opinions:
- Retail financial services and insurance (INT/772)
- Reporting and transparency of securities financing transactions (INT/738)
- Indices serving as Benchmarks in Financial and other Contracts (INT/718)
- Reform of the structure of EU banks (INT/717)
