Creation of EU-wide legal framework of investment protection for intra EU investments urgently needed!
Numerous investment protection agreements with investor protection clauses and investor-state arbitration provisions provide the highest degree of legal certainty for investments. However, the latter is called into question by the judgment of the European Court of Justice in the case of Achmea of 6 March 2018 (C-284/16). In its position paper, the Deutsche Aktieninstitut addresses the European Institutions and urges them to create an EU-wide legal framework of investment protection for EU investments. Only in this way, legal certainty for investors can be guaranteed on a permanent basis.
