On Thursday 23 November 2017 the Groningen Centre for European Financial Services Law will hold an international conference on the topic ‘Financial Consumer Protection, Financial Advice, and Changing Remuneration Structures in the Post-Crisis Era’. The conference will be hosted by the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (Vijzelgracht 50, Amsterdam) on the occasion of its 15th anniversary.
This interdisciplinary conference aims to explore the post-crisis legal regimes for the provision of financial advice in the EU and beyond as well as the actual and potential impact of such regimes on the behavior of consumers and financial advisors in financial markets.

The key note will be given by prof. Niamh Moloney (London School of Economics and Political Science). Among the speakers are also prof. Femke de Vries (Board Member Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets / University of Groningen), prof. Paolo Giudici (University of Bolzano), prof. Genevieve Helleringer (University of Oxford), prof. Ian MacNeil (University of Glasgow), prof. Diederik Bruloot (University of Gent), dr. Vera Angelova (Technical University of Berlin), dr.
