I am proud to announce that the latest, the 3rd, edition of "Banking Business in Germany" is now available. Also the new edition was developed in close cooperation between the Association of Foreign Banks in Germany (Verband der Auslandsbanken in Deutschland e.V.) and PwC and, like the former editions, is endorsed by the State-Government of Hesse.
The book's subtitle tries to explain its ambition in one short sentence:
"A practical guide for foreign banks establishing a subsidiary or a branch in Germany"
True. But actually the book covers much more: It presents a current overview of the economic, regulatory, legal and tax framework that applies to credit institutions and financial service institutions in Germany. More than 27 authors, 6 months of preparation and 442 pages were required in order to cope with that task. Due to the numerous developments throughout the financial market in the last four years it was necessary to revise and expand more or less every chapter of the book.
I hope you enjoy reading the book and look forward to receive your comments.
