Proportionality paramount to better regulation

ESBG says during meeting with MEPs on banking sector regulatory issues.​

​​​​​​​​​​​​BRUSSELS, 5 September 2017 – Proportionality must be weaved into major banking regulatory issues on the EU policymaking agenda, the European Savings and Retail Banking Group met today with a delegation of members of the European Parliament. 

The association and a group of its members took part in the midday meeting with parliamentarians hosted by MEP Peter Simon, Vice-Chair of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs and Member of S&D Group.
