In the most recent Executive Board meeting, Frankfurt Main Finance e.V. accepted new sustaining members. Goldman Sachs, the law firm Taylor Wessing LLP and the FinTech consulting firm, Techfluence Consult UG have pledged their support to the financial centre, Frankfurt. WM Group joined already in April of this year.
Support from members provides the association with the necessary weight and credibility to accomplish its goals. Dr. Lutz Raettig, Chairman of the Executive Committee of Frankfurt Main Finance: “We’re glad that we can count on these new members to support us in promoting the Financial Centre Frankfurt. This support shows how meaningful our efforts are. Together with our new members, we will continue to campaign and advocate for Frankfurt.”
The board also identified additional areas of concentration for their work. These include:
- Making Frankfurt a more attractive location for FinTech companies
- Marketing the Renminbi trade centre
- Developing and deepening cooperation with emerging financial centres in the key areas of technology, regulation, training and risk management.
At the end of the year, Kingwood Mallesons LLP, Tata Consultancy Services Deutschland GmbH and the Royal Bank of Scotland will leave the association.
