In times of rapidly expanding markets in the fields of biotechnology, nanotechnology and new materials, new financial service products are essential for young companies that have little equity. At the same time, investors are providing ever-increasing sums of money for venture capital. As the leading location for financial service providers with its broad range of insurance companies, banks, venture capitalists, leasing companies and asset managers, Bavaria is well equipped to meet these challenges.
A financial center stands or falls with its surroundings – the companies from other industries that interact with it, the people that work at and around the financial center, and the quality of its science, research and infrastructure. Munich and Bavaria are at the forefront in all of these areas.
Bavaria – leader in financial services
In Germany, Munich is
- the No. 1 insurance location,
- the No. 2 center for banking,
- a leading location for asset management,
- the location for venture capital and leasing.
Measured in terms of market capitalization, the Munich DAX Index already carries much more weight than that of Frankfurt.
