Surmounting challenges jointly

"As a founding member of Germany Finance, we are pleased to take on the role of spokesperson in 2022 in challenging times," said Harald Vogelsang, Chair of Finanzplatz Hamburg. "Major tasks at national and European level lie ahead for our industry. We have to finance the sustainable restructuring of our economy, find an intelligent framework and drive forward digitalisation. These challenges affect all the German financial centres and can be better managed together."

Major reports studies published 

Germany Finance can look back on a successful first year in 2021 and after publishing the "German Fintech Report 2021" and "Germany's Financial Centre as the Cornerstone of the European Financial System".  Germany Finance also raised its  international visibility and presence by taking part in the Asian Financial Forum and co-operating with Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI).
