01/02/2001 00-124b Consultative Paper on "the Harmonisation of Core Conduct of Business Rules for Investor Protection" Consultation Paper PDF
951.84 KB
FESCO has adopted in March 2000 a paper on the "Implementation of article 11 of the ISD: Categorisation of investors for the purpose of conduct of business rules" (00-FESCO-A) and agreed to start a consultation on a new paper on "The harmonisation of core conduct of business rules for investor protection" (ref. FESCO/00-124b). These two documents are intended to be complementary and part of the same exercise, aimed at providing a harmonised framework for the provision of investment services throughout EEA. First, intermediaries have to categorise their clients on the basis of the criteria laid down in the FESCO document, then, depending on the outcome, either the retail or the professional regime will apply. The elaboration of these documents is a significant contribution to the EU Action Plan for Financial Services developed by the European Commission and will contribute to enhancing investor confidence and, therefore, to the implementation of efficient and transparent financial Markets in Euope. The document is open to public consultation for a period of 3 months.

31/03/2006 06-092 Consulting Investors on the Transparency Directive: Storage of Information Consultation Paper PDF
67.44 KB
The issue of storage is important for investors in that it should provide investors with greater access to information on all issuers across Europe. The idea is that all EU investors will be able to access information from a single source in order to evaluate their investment opportunities and to make informed investment choices. CESR considers that investors and more particularly, retail investors may wish to use the storage system to access information and therefore this system should be structured so as to be user-friendly for end investors and to respond to their expectations in terms of functionalities. An investor's version of the Consultation paper (Ref. CESR/06-025)was distributed to retail investor associations, and a hearing was organised on 20 March. The responses received to this investor's version will be included in the list of responses received to the Consultation paper
