International work

Fund regulation comes primarily from the EU, secondarily from Germany, but also from other parts of the world, in particular from the USA and international organisations. This is why we represent the interests of the German fund industry worldwide. We also take into account the interests of the German branches of foreign fund providers, which account for around 40 percent of BVI members.
