After Lehman filed for bankruptcy in 2008, public confidence in the financial market was seriously undermined. This loss of trust in the capital market and its stakeholders also hit the investment sector. As a result, the German investment business has a strong interest in stabilising the general environment for the capital markets. For this reason, BVI works constructively with legislators and regulators in order to achieve further improvements in terms of regulation.
This holds true all the more when you consider that German investment funds neither caused the global financial crisis nor required state aid. Today, investment funds are already the most transparent and most highly regulated financial products.
