The ratio of EU household debt to disposable income rose in 2017. Albeit small, this increase was the first noted in six years. In that context, several observers are already warning of a possible upward risk of household over-indebtedness in the coming years. While it is too early to assess if this risk will materialise, a review of the effectiveness of existing rules aimed at tackling the issue should give us a better understanding of whether further policy actions are needed.

In September 2019, Europe’s financial markets will undergo a revolution.

From that date, the Payment Services Directive (PSD2) will require banks to provide API software interfaces, allowing financial upstarts to tap customer data. This new access to bank data is designed to jumpstart fintech innovation, encouraging the creation of a myriad of innovative, secure consumer-friendly services.

To help meet that challenge, CEPS, ECRI and ECMI are jointly organising their Annual Conference on “Data, Innovation and Regulation in Finance: Finding the right balance!”

In recent years, there has been much hype that banks will soon experience a dramatic loss of market shares. Too slow and too old-fashioned for the ever-changing digital era, they could be overwhelmed by fintech start-ups and tech giants. The CEPS-ECRI report on “Cost and value in banks: a model fit for the digital era?” reveals a rather more nuanced picture. Retail and corporate banks do have to cope with legacy issues that impede their efficiency and reactivity. In particular, different norms within groups are still used for accountancy, cost allocation systems and product hierarchies.

CEPS-ECRI conference in cooperation with BEUC and EFIN.

The aim of the conference is to explore, from the perspective of financial inclusion, both the potential risks and benefits for everyone in society of innovations in financial services products and delivery systems, encompassing big data and fintech. The underlying question is whether regulators should act in anticipation of these developments, and if so, what actions will best guarantee a positive outcome, without stifling innovation.

Each of the panels will focus on the following three questions:
