A strong business location requires an efficient financial industry. Banks, insurance companies, asset managers, and investment advisors are of systemic importance and are therefore subject to special attention of legislators and the responsible regulatory authorities.
It is now all the more important to approach the dialogue with politicians strategically and to present the concerns of the financial sector in an understandable way. The (private) co-financing of transformation processes, aspects of demographic change, and sustainability (“sustainable finance”) are playing an increasing role.
