What is it about?
The Fund is an initiative of philanthropic friends. They use their own network and the network around Better Finance ngo to collect donations. The funds collected are used to financially support several projects of the organisation.
Better Finance ngo aims to represent, protect and defend, at European level, the interests of citizens as individual investors, shareholders, life insurance savers, members of pension and retirement funds and other users and consumers of financial services resident in the European Union and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). In this capacity, the association promotes education, research and information on savings, investment and retail finance in Europe, as well as all other related activities. As a federation, Better Finance represents its members from national associations with the same objectives. It thus works in accordance with the European principle of subsidiarity. Its activities are supported by the European Union since 2012.
Better Finance's main activities are research, raising awareness among European public authorities and providing information on investments, savings and personal finance, while promoting financial education. In this capacity, it acts as a center of financial expertise and independent advocacy for policy makers and other stakeholders in the financial sector (including users of financial services, retail investors and other independent stakeholders in the financial industry).
