European Investors takes great pleasure in announcing the establishment of its Berlin ‘virtual’ offices on 15 December 2020. The address is at Unter der Linden 21, Berlin 10117, Germany.
This establishment in Germany entitles European Investors to attain membership of the German Verbändeliste (a panel of associations), giving European Investors entry to the German political arena. European Investors can submit comments on German legislative processes, and even before that, engage in proposed corporate governance changes, it will get invited to expert hearings, discussions with the civil services at the ministries, or with Members of Parliament. European Investors effectuates its entry in the German arena through its appointment of German attorney-at-law Dr Andreas Zubrod as its permanent representative. Dr Zubrod will have access to parliament in Berlin.
European Investors strives to be a truly European organisation, promoting good corporate governance throughout the EU-membership. Its German inroads are in concrete furtherance of its multi-pronged action triggered by the Wirecard scam. European Investors is engaged in a lawsuit against Wirecard’s statutory auditors EY (launched at the Stuttgart Landgericht), whilst in parallel it actively engages with the BaFin and the German Ministry of Finance.
