Capital markets law governs the issuing and trading of investment products. Its purpose is the protection of capital investors, on the one hand, and the safeguarding of a functioning capital market and economy, on the other. Capital markets law requires sound interdisciplinary expertise in areas such as investment law, stock corporation law, securities law and stock exchange law.
The modern capital market offers a wide variety of investment opportunities. In addition to classic instruments such as shares, bonds, options or so-called German participation rights, a significant variety of investment products has recently been created on the grey capital market. Contracts and agreements for participation in silent partnerships, open- or closed-end real estate funds, ship investment funds, aircraft funds or life insurance funds are usually very complex and require detailed knowledge about their economic and legal backgrounds.
