  • EU Consultation on Enhancing Intra-EU Investor Protection

    The European Commission has launched a consultation on the intra-EU investment protection and facilitation framework. The Commission is seeking views on the current EU system for investor protection, in particular, how it might be strengthened to encourage further cross-border investment within the EU. The Commission is also investigating how to make cross-border investments easier in the context of the Capital Markets Union. Both legislative and non-legislative options are being considered to address the divergence of investor protection across the EU and concerns about enforcements of rights and remedies. The consultation closes on September 8, 2020. If its assessment of the feedback indicates that it would be appropriate to do so, the Commission intends to publish a legislative proposal in Q1 2021.
