Financial Consumer Protection measures re COVID-19

Policy makers and public authorities from around the globe are taking action, providing guidance and recommending measures to protect and support financial consumers facing financial difficulties as a results of the COVID-19 crisis.

We are sharing information from participants in the G20/OECD Task Force on Financial Consumer Protection and public authorities in other jurisdictions about measures implemented in response to COVID-19.

Measures to address the COVID-19 crisis

 

Financial Consumer Protection and Ageing Populations

The ageing population and the increase in longevity present opportunities and challenges across many countries, such as financially preparing people for ageing, supporting access to relevant financial products and services, ensuring older people are fairly treated and protecting older people from financial abuse.

The report on Financial Consumer Protection and Ageing Populations produced by the G20/OECD Task Force on FCP focuses specifically on issues and approaches for the financial consumer protection of older people as financial consumers. This report also sets out a number of examples from jurisdictions as well as policy considerations for policy makers and public authorities relating to the financial consumer protection of older people drawn from the analysis and research conducted.

To strengthen financial inclusion in the ageing society, the OECD and the Global Partnership on Financial Inclusion developed the G20 Fukuoka Policy Priorities on Aging and Financial Inclusion, which was endorsed by the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors at their meeting in Fukuoka, Japan on 8-9 June 2019.

The global financial crisis highlighted the need for more effective financial consumer protection measures as consumers face more sophisticated and complex financial markets. The availability of information has grown both in quantity and complexity and the pace of change, in terms of new product developments, product innovations, and technological advances, has increased dramatically.

 

Building and maintaining consumer confidence and trust in financial markets promotes efficiency and stability and helps to create positive outcomes for both financial institutions and their customers.

 

The OECD is working on how to enhance financial consumer protection, which includes determining what is required to help consumers gain the confidence, knowledge, information, security and choices they need to enable them to fully participate in financial markets.

G20 High-level Principles on Financial Consumer Protection

In February 2011, the G20 called on the OECD, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) and other relevant international organisations to develop common principles on consumer protection in the field of financial services. These principles were endorsed at the G20 meeting on 14-15 October 2011.

 

The G20/OECD Task Force on Financial Consumer Protection is currently focused on supporting the implementation of the High-level Principles.
