Get to know IE's Advisory Board Germany

InvestmentEurope's has strenghtened ties with the fund selection community in Germany by creating an independent advisory board in the country.

The Advisory Board Germany 2020 is formed by leading fund selectors working for the asset management industry, whose regular comments and insights will play a key role on the evolution of InvestmentEurope's digital & printed magazine and events' portfolio.

The launch is the first of many, given that other regional and independent advisory boards, corresponding to the different European regions covered by our publication, are set to be announced in the coming months. 

If you are a fund selector and want to join this board, the one from your region, or simply want to find out more about the initiative, contact InvestmentEurope's editorial team.
