This paper is part of a series of five studies on mis-selling of financial products in the EU. The paper analyses three important and highly publicised cases of mis-selling of investment products to retail clients, featuring interesting legal particularities: the Citibank case, the Dexia case and the Fortis case. On the basis of this analysis, the paper draws a number of conclusions on the national and EU regulatory framework in respect of investor compensation.
