Initiative 'Germany as a Financial Centre' (Dialogforum Finanzstandort Deutschland)
The objective of the initiative 'Germany as a Financial Centre' (Dialogforum Finanzstandort Deutschland) is to implement tangible and close-to-the-market measures to both generate growth and strengthen Germany as a financial centre. The joint initiative was launched in early spring 2003 by eleven financial institutes – including Deutsche Börse – together with Deutsche Bundesbank (the German Federal Bank) and Bundesministerium für Finanzen (the Federal Ministry for Finance, BMF).
Exchange Experts Commission
The Börsensachverständigenkommission (Exchange Experts Commission, BSK), which was set up in 1968, advises the German Federal Ministry for Finance on capital market policy issues. The BSK consists of representatives of investor protection associations, banks, insurance companies, investment companies, stock exchanges, industry, the German Federal Bank, academia and the Regional Working Group Stock Exchanges.
The BSK secretariat is attached to Patrick Arora, Deutsche Börse AG.
