In its response to the EU Commission’s Roadmap “A Capital Markets Union that supports people and businesses”, Deutsches Aktieninstitut stresses the importance to alleviate companies of all sizes from compliance burdens stemming from EU Capital Markets Regulation. Otherwise, European Capital Markets will remain unattractive for companies. We also propose to adjust investor protection rules with the aim to strike the right balance between the needs of companies and investors.
