The relevant changes that have occurred in financial markets and the recent financial crises have strongly suggested the need for adequate financial consumer protection. This protection is primarily based on appropriate forms of macro and micro prudential supervision. Among the latter, measures to safeguard the transparency of conditions and to protect the consumer from fraudulent behavior play a primary role. Moreover, initiatives to enhance the financial education of consumers, and therefore the acceptance of loss when the risk consciously assumed realized, should be promoted. .
