Future Financing Act and crowdfunding: drama, next act. 4 highly qualified experts of the policy, fintech, research, and Brussels space discuss the government draft for the future financing act and its relevance for crowdfunding.
We’re talking about a legal delicacy and political bone of contention: the liability provisions in sections 32 c and d of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG). With the Future Financing Act, the German government wanted to eliminate competitive disadvantages to the detriment of German crowdfunding. On the way to the government draft, however, it ran out of courage. Why? No one knows. A highly qualified panel traces the answer, discusses the current legal situation, the proposals of the German government and alternative solutions.Guests:

  • Prof. Dr. Petra Buck-Heeb (Leibniz University Hannover)
  • Max Mordhorst (Member of the German Bundestag)
