A financial sector that serves society
We stand for root and branch reform of the financial sector, with effective regulation of banks, hedge funds and financial organisations.
These banks and funds brought the world to the brink of disaster in 2008 and provoked a recession that has cost millions of jobs and cut living standards in much of Europe.
No more 'too big to fail banks'. No more taxpayer bailouts. No more excessive risk-taking with other peoples' money. We want to see a strict separation of casino banking from high street banks and high standards of transparency for a healthy banking sector that benefits the whole of society.
