With a regulatory framework that ensures balance of innovation, protection of consumers and investors, and financial stability, the financial sector will be a key driver in the European ambition for leadership in the digital economy.

The digital transformation changes services and operations fundamentally. It brings innovative potential but also challenging distortions to the single market. To compete, banks need a level playing field vis-à-vis actors who carry a lighter regulatory and oversight backpack. The rulebook needs to be updated.
