The city of Frankfurt is the most important financial hub in continental Europe and a key center of financial market stability. It features a unique concentration of European and national supervisory bodies, international banks, insurance companies and legal practitioners.
On top of Germany’s general political and economic stability, five factors in particular make Frankfurt an attractive place to set up office:
- Reputation for financial soundness and solidity
- Function as a central hub for national, European and global financial activity
- Depth and density of resources, with proximity and access to key players up to and including ECB
- Site-specific qualities including affordable office rents and costs of living
The financial hub of Frankfurt is home to an exceptional network comprised of 202 banks (40 domestic banks, 162 international banks and 33 representative offices), 7,900 financial services companies and investment funds as well as large branches of all of the world’s best-known consulting agencies, law firms and auditing companies.
Deutsche Börse group’s headquarters is also located in Frankfurt. Deutsche Börse is globally engaged in Luxembourg, Prague, London, Zurich, Moscow, New York, Chicago, Hong Kong, Singapore, Beijing, and Tokyo.
