VEB is member of EuroFinUse and EuroShareholders.

EuroFinUse aims at representing and defending at the European level the interests of financial services users in order to promote training, research and information on investments, savings, borrowings and Personal Finances of individuals in Europe, by grouping the organisations pursuing the same objectives at a national or international level. It acts by respecting the European principle of subsidiarity. Already about 45 national organizations of investors and other financial services users have joined us, and EuroFinUse already represents about four million European citizens.

Following the worst financial crisis since 1929, EuroFinUse's main objective for 2011 is to restore financial services consumers' confidence. In order to do so, UeroFinUse will focus on four key priorities:

1. A better governance of financial supervision
2. Better transparency, liquidity, integrity, and efficiency of capital markets
3. A better protection of financial services consumers
4. More responsible and more competitive lending

Euroshareholders is the organisation of European shareholders associations. It was founded in 1992 with its General Secretariat in Brussels. At present Euroshareholders gathers 31 national shareholders associations all over Europe.

The organisation's overall task is to represent the interests of individual shareholders in the European Union.

The main objectives of Euroshareholders are:

1. To protect and represent the interests of shareholders and other investors in listed securities
2. To enhance shareholders' value
3. To guarantee equal treatment of all shareholders
4. To support harmonisation at the EU level on appropriate issues
5. To support corporate governance principles at the European level
6. To promote financial education and scientific research on capital market and shareholder value, e.g. in the regulatory area

One of Euroshareholders' activities is also fighting against insider trading, misleading information and other forms of financial criminality. Many of our members bring cases in court in their national jurisdictions despite the lack of collective redress schemes for investors in a majority of EU member countries.
