“The importance of the location for financial institutions and their extended ecosystem is beyond question.”

Frankfurt Main Finance (FMF) continues to grow! In an interview, information service & technology provider Wolter Kluwers | CCH® Tagetik, one of FMF’s newest members, explains why they joined the Financial Centre Initiative at the beginning of the year and where it sees the strengths of the Financial Centre Frankfurt.

Why do your company support the Financial Centre Frankfurt as a member of FMF?

The Financial Centre Frankfurt is of great importance to our clients; thus, we would like to promote it in the best possible way in line with our clients’ interests. We see this as a win-win situation for both sides: On one hand we support the Financial Centre Frankfurt with our expert knowledge and at the same time make our brand better known in the Frankfurt area.

Active participation in Frankfurt Main Finance also puts us in a position to maintain even closer and more sustainable partnerships with other partners in Frankfurt and to exchange information on opportunities and challenges in the Financial Centre.

How does your company contribute to the development of the Financial Centre Frankfurt?

By actively participating as an IT solutions provider in FMF, we would like to make our diverse process and digitisation knowledge in the financial sector available to companies in and around Frankfurt. We also believe that through our complementary network, we can provide great additional value for the FMF community, from which all members will benefit, and the Financial Centre Frankfurt will be supported.

Where do you see the strengths of the Financial Centre Frankfurt? What can be improved?

The importance of the location for financial institutions and their extended ecosystem is beyond question, Frankfurt is a world-renowned Financial Centre. The cultural diversity is strong, but its degree of popularity can be expanded across countries. The Financial Centre Frankfurt is already an emerging digital hub, which can boast many well-known – especially medium-sized – IT companies. As an IT company, however, we still see potential to make this aspect even more visible to and for the city and region.
