In a new survey, respondents representing 35.000 employees from the finance sector in the Nordic countries evaluate the impact of the new regulatory requirements – and the results are worrying. Nordic Financial Unions (NFU) invites you to a conference to discuss effects, trends and the future of financial regulation. 

NFU welcomes you to join a half-day conference presenting a new report, with a unique perspective on how new regulatory requirements impact consumer protection and employee wellbeing. In two panel sessions we will share experiences and discuss ways forward to create a financial sector that is sustainable for employees, consumers and society.

In the first part of the conference a high-level panel with representatives from the financial industry, consumer organizations and trade unions will discuss the current situation within the finance sector. What are the effects of the new regulation on customers and employees? What happens to trust and stability when compliance comes in the way of quality advice and customer service?

In the second part of the conference the distinguished panelists come together to reflect on the future of regulation. How do we ensure that finance contributes to sustainable growth and jobs, and make regulation support a healthy financial sector?
