After the accession of its closest neighbours to the EU in
May, and following reform to the country's securities
regulatory framework, Austria's businesses should be well
placed to attract investment. Indeed, in a release earlier this
year Wiener Börse said a five-fold increase in trading
activity on the national exchange was conceivable given the
potential of the Austrian market. Yet legislative difficulties
face both local companies and foreign investors, such as
confusing competition rules that seem even to catch M&A
deals between overseas parties. Meanwhile, the banking
community awaits changes in key areas such as securitization,
which practitioners hope will unleash the potential of this
underused financing means. The articles in this client guide
cover these and other developments.
