For the development of any nation or economy financial services play a key role and the growth of the financial sector largely depends upon confidence of users/consumers in their fairness, transparency, accountability, responsiveness, accessibility and adaptability. The need for consumer protection arises from an imbalance of power, information and resources between consumers and their financial service providers.


The global financial crisis highlighted the need for more effective financial consumer protection measures as consumers face more sophisticated and complex financial markets.
