2020 Regulatory Agenda - Top priorities
A snapshot of the regulatory agenda at your fingertips for the EU & Luxembourg
While COVID-19’s impact on the investment management industry is not nearly as high a priority as protecting people’s health and well-being, it is still important for investment professionals to learn from these challenges. Eventually, when people turn their attention to their investments, they will likely hope that their investment professionals were diligently working to safeguard their portfolios during these turbulent times.
Deloitte team would like to help you track relevant financial regulation changes, linked to COVID-19 and as well the regulatory topics that are interesting for your respective industries.
Just as the financial sectors speed up and become more and more digital every year, in 2020 we decided to revamp the format of the Deloitte Regulatory Agenda. To help visualize Deloitte’s selection of top regulatory priorities for 2020, we are pleased to offer you the seventh edition of our regulatory agenda poster.
As in previous years, the financial sector is inundated with regulations that will take centre stage in 2020. Some new, some old but all will continue to challenge the banking, investment management and insurance sectors.
Herein, you can see which regulations will have an impact on your organization, their significance, the outcomes, and respective timelines.

Brexit should still top the agenda
“Where do we stand? With Brexit officially happening on 31 January 2020, the United Kingdom (UK) has now taken its final step out of the European Union (EU). Does this finally end the uncertainty for European companies?
The aim of this Brexit alert is to provide:
- A summary of the latest observed factors and impacts of Brexit on Luxembourg financial services; and
- How Deloitte can help in organizations’ potential reallocation and/or reorganization.

As we enter the second quarter of 2020, April is the ideal month to update our regulatory poster and analyze our necessary deviation from the linear agenda that was originally planning our year. The COVID-19 situation has, of course, altered many plans and in the following update, we would like to emphasize three main points for your attention:
- An overview of measures taken to combat the financial effects of COVID-19 (until mid April 2020)
- A reminder that although the COVID-19 situation takes much of our time, it does not obviate every other piece of regulation
- Short-term areas of action.
