Capital Markets

Back to Banking & Finance

The Luxembourg Stock Exchange is the largest stock exchange in Europe in terms of international bond listings with more than 29,000 international bond issues listed. It offers a choice of two markets, the main EU-regulated market called “the Bourse de Luxembourg market" and an exchange-regulated market called “Euro MTF”.

Our Capital Markets team offers a wide range of transactional and advisory services for all aspects of capital markets, derivatives, structured products and structured finance transactions.

"The CMS team was very professional and flexible - they supported us in some urgent manners also in the evenings, their service was of high quality. They also advised on their own initiative about some topics which could have been forgotten about if they hadn't reached out."

"We have had the highest regard for the quality of CMS Law's legal expertise, and client-centric service mentality, which straddled multiple domains at the forefront of emerging legislation. It was pragmatic, timely, comprehensive, and willing to take calculated risks on topics which had little legal precedence. The final contract that was generated was reviewed by multiple partners, to ensure compliance with multiple considerations, particular with deep consideration to the specifics of blockchain technology and security token offerings - and their interaction with existing funds and securitisation legislation."

Lex­o­logy GT­DT - Guide on ESG and im­pact in­vest­ing
In re­cent years, Lux­em­bourg has de­veloped in­to the ul­ti­mate sus­tain­able fin­ance centre in Europe. Sev­er­al ini­ti­at­ives have been launched over the years by the gov­ern­ment, the private sec­tor, vari­ous non-profit in­sti­tu­tions, agen­cies and oth­er au­thor­it­ies, all of them aimed at en­han­cing and fur­ther con­sol­id­at­ing the edge that Lux­em­bourg’s fin­an­cial par­ti­cipants pos­sess on ESG mat­ters.This guide aims to ex­am­ine how Lux­em­bourg leg­ally ad­dress ESG, im­pact in­vest­ing and pur­pose-driv­en com­pan­ies and how it com­pares to oth­er jur­is­dic­tions across the globe. In do­ing so, the pub­lic­a­tion also aims to cre­ate the basis for un­der­stand­ing what is com­mon to each jur­is­dic­tion in these fields, what are the reg­u­lat­ory trends and up­com­ing de­vel­op­ments.
Lex­o­logy GT­DT - Cryptoassets & Block­chain
Lux­em­bourg is closely mon­it­or­ing emer­ging trends and top­ics re­lated to Vir­tu­al As­sets and block­chain with a view to cre­at­ing a fa­vour­able en­vir­on­ment for such in­nov­a­tions. Non-fun­gible tokens and de­cent­ral­ised fin­ance are hot top­ics. Se­cur­ity tokens are also gain­ing mo­mentum, with ma­jor play­ers will­ing to launch their first pi­lot pro­jects, par­tic­u­larly if they can rely on nat­ive tokens (ie, de­ma­ter­i­al­ised se­cur­it­ies is­sued dir­ectly on the block­chain).As it stands, the Lux­em­bourg leg­al and reg­u­lat­ory frame­work does not gov­ern Vir­tu­al As­sets as such but rather those that provide ser­vices as a busi­ness in re­la­tion thereto.
