As a German fund association, we represent the interests of the German fund industry vis-à-vis politicians, supervisory authorities and international institutions. In doing so, we advocate nationally and internationally a sensible regulation of the fund business and fair competitive conditions.
We organise the industry's collective decision-making process - regardless of whether the members invest in securities or tangible assets, pursue active or passive strategies, specialise in administration or portfolio management, address institutional or private investors. Our members also include German branches of foreign fund companies. They account for about 44 percent of the membership.
