Capital markets lawFranzisca Stuckenberg, lawyer
is highly complex.
Good to know someone
who simply understands.
On the one hand: broad technological possibilities. On the other hand: strict regulation. It’s good to have a partner who can walk that tightrope.
Ever since the financial crisis of 2007-2008, capital markets – and the regulations which govern them – have been in a state of upheaval. On the one hand, the market has been flooded by a “regulatory tsunami” that shows no signs of ebbing, with regulatory requirements increasing in both scope and complexity. On the other hand, however, new and previously unknown financing opportunities are opening up to issuers in Germany – some resulting from the EU initiative on the CMU (Capital Markets Union), and others emerging in the wake of advancing digitalisation.
The aim of the CMU is to strengthen the capital market focus of the European financial system. Amongst other things, this has led to the development of new issuing paths with lower transaction costs for medium-sized companies.
With the advance of digitalisation in the financial market, the focus on financing via digital platforms grows stronger. At the same time, new technological developments such as DLT (distributed ledger technology) and blockchain are opening up a world of new opportunities.
As the regulatory and technological landscape evolves, market players (issuers, issuing banks and their advisers) need to adapt to the new terrain. Capital market players also face a number of challenges which are unrelated to the new developments. Corporate finance, stock corporation law, securities law, investor protection, capital market regulation, corporate governance and compliance – all these aspects are interconnected on the capital market.
