    Goals / Remit

    The European Retail Financial Forum (ERFF) is a consumer-focused pan-European industry platform, launched in the European Parliament in October 2015.

    ERFF’s overall objective is to support the opening up of cross border consumer financial markets in Europe in ways that are most beneficial to all – consumers, business and Europe. We do this by bringing all stakeholders around one table including consumers, business and policymakers.

    Our main activities are business/consumer dialogues, technical workshops and our annual 'Consumers at the heart of finance in Europe' conference.

    We particularly welcome engagement with consumer groups.

    We are not a trade association. Rather we aim, though dialogue with all stakeholders to share experiences, address issues and seek common approaches on retail financial services policies.

    Main EU files targeted

    EU policies on consumer financial services including green and digital recovery policies, financial inclusion/literacy, sustainable finance, digital finance including data/AI strategies and open finance, retail investment strategy.
