The bank for a changing world

BNP Paribas Real Estate has produced a "Guide to Investing in Germany", outlining the 10 chief reasons for Germany's importance as an investment location.

The Guide contains information and market data on Germany's six most important investment centres (Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich), which together account for more than half of the country's annual investment volume.

In addition, the brochure presents three major development projects: Europacity in Berlin, HafenCity in Hamburg and the Europaviertel in Frankfurt.

Under the heading "Investor case studies", international money managers give their views on the German property market. Then there are contributions from experts at international law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer on administrative, legal and tax aspects of investing in real estate in Germany.

The 40-page brochure is launched at MIPIM international real estate show, where Germany is this year's country of honour. This guide is the third one to be published by BNP Paribas Real Estate after guides to investing in London and Paris.
