The UK Government announced in November 2020 far-reaching changes to its powers to screen investments in the UK on the basis of national security grounds that will include a new UK review body similar to the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS). This Curtis client briefing discusses in Part I the proposed National Security and Investment Bill currently pending in Parliament, and provides in Part II an overview of the currently-existing regulatory regime that will be superseded by the new legislation, which is expected to become law in the second half of 2021.
The proposed legislation empowers the UK government to retroactively review transactions that were completed before the new legislation came into force. If you would like to discuss the proposed legislation and how it may affect your investments or investment plans, please contact the persons listed in this client briefing or inquire with your regular Curtis contact.
