'Real Economy' in the Focus of Financial Regulation


Jump to...


Associate Andreas Wieland (London-Financial Institutions Advisory & Financial Regulatory) published an article titled "'Real Economy' in the Focus of Financial Regulation" in Platow-recht.

In his article, Wieland warns non-financial companies that recent financial regulation (such as MiFID II) has an increasing impact on industrial, trade and energy companies. As a result, companies of the "real economy" have to face the risk of new financial regulatory license requirements, in the context of M&A transactions they may have to observe financial regulatory ownership control procedures, and they may also be subject to specific financial regulatory corporate governance requirements.
