The study reviews the EU legislative and regulatory framework for the marketing, sale and distribution of financial products to assess whether post-crisis EU regulatory reforms have met their objectives and, if not, what are the gaps and weaknesses in the current EU regulatory approach.

This study forms part of a series of five studies on mis-selling of financial products in the EU. The study reviews the EU legislative and regulatory framework for the marketing, sale and distribution of financial products to assess whether post-crisis EU regulatory reforms have met their objectives and, if not, what are the gaps and weaknesses in the current EU regulatory approach. The EU follows a sectoral approach to regulating the marketing and sale of financial products, which results in segmentation and arbitrage risks. The paper argues that the European Supervisory Authorities should adopt more harmonised regulatory and technical standards to reduce these risks and ensure more effective enforcement by Member State authorities.
