Finance Watch is a European NGO founded in reaction to the last financial crisis, when policymakers realised that there was no counter-power to the lobby of finance.
We are an organisation of non-profit members from Europe and beyond. Our strength is our team, partly composed of ex-finance professionals which allows us to challenge the financial lobby’s fallacious technical arguments. We defend the public interest in the making of financial regulations.
We are an organisation of non-profit members from Europe and beyond. Our members include organisations and expert individuals from a dozen different countries, as listed below. They meet regularly to coordinate actions on financial reform.
In some countries, such as France or Italy, Finance Watch’s members have structured their activities as a national network. In Germany, we work with our partner organisation Finanzwende / Finance Watch Germany.
