1 Munich Financial Center: Top in Finance!

2 Contents Editorial: Munich Financial Center Champion of the Bavarian Economy Editorial The Financial Center at a Glance History of the Financial Center Insurance Banking Asset Management Stock Exchange Private Equity and Venture Capital Leasing and Factoring Institutions Research and Education Location Expatriates / Human Resources Members of the Initiative / Contact List of Illustrations Bavaria s economic and innovative power and top-level research are recognized around the world. The fact that Bavaria is also Top in Finance is, regrettably, not as widely known. That is unfortunate. Bavaria is now one of the most important financial centers in Europe because of the high quality and wide range of companies that it offers in the areas of asset management, banking, insurance, leasing, equity funds and venture capital. Munich is the No. 1 insurance center in Germany, the No. 2 banking center, the No. 1 asset management center and the top private equity, venture capital and leasing center in Germany, and it also has an important stock exchange. Because of ever fiercer competition, it is important for Bavaria to continue to consolidate its position as a top international financial center. That is the reason why the Bavarian ministry of economic affairs initiated the Munich Financial Center Initiative, in which prominent representatives from financial services, insurance companies, venture capital and leasing companies, the Bayerische Börse AG, chambers of commerce, trade associations and the field of science are taking part. In addition, we have gathered expertise from all of the major players in the financial services sector as part of the cluster initiative of the Bavarian government. The goal is to get the Bavarian financial services sector to work more closely with science. In this brochure, you will find out more about one of the most important financial centers in Europe, its businesses, institutions and special environment. Erwin Huber Bavarian Minister of Economics, Infrastructure, Commerce and Technology

3 The Financial Center at a Glance: Top in Finance! Bavaria and the Munich metropolitan area in particular rank among Europe s leading financial centers. This holds true for all branches of finance for the traditional banking and insurance sectors, as well as asset management activities, venture capital solutions, and leasing and factoring trades. In addition, the Munich financial center is extremely well positioned in this industry, with offerings that are both broad-based and at the cutting-edge. This is demonstrated by the fact that many prominent businesses in the financial sector have their head offices in Munich and Bavaria. Among the most widely known are the Allianz and Munich Re insurance groups, the Nuremberg insurance groups, HUK- Coburg, HypoVereinsbank and BayernLB. They all represent an economic sector that is one of the leading drivers of growth in Bavaria and will actively represent the Munich Financial Center Initiative abroad. For that purpose, major companies, organizations and institutions have joined together to promote the importance of the financial center and draw attention to its views and recommendations. Insurance: A global leader Banking: One of the most important banking centers Asset Management: A leader in Europe Stock Exchange: One of Europe s most innovative stock exchanges Venture Capital / Private Equity: No. 1 in Germany Leasing: The leading leasing center in Germany 4 5

Employees worldwide: 3,600 Premium incomes: 1.16 bn. euros Insurance: A Global Leader Munich is one of the leading insurance centers worldwide. About 80 insurance companies have their headquarters in the Bavarian state capital and its surrounding towns among them one of the most important direct insurers worldwide, the Allianz Group; the world s largest re-insurance company, Munich Re; Europe s leading legal expenses insurer, D.A.S.; Germany s most important insurance group under public law, Versicherungskammer Bayern (Bavarian Insurance Chamber); as well as the largest group of professional pension plans in Germany, Bayerische Versorgungskammer (Bavarian Pension Chamber). In addition to the insurance groups domiciled in Munich, numerous other foreign and domestic insurers maintain principal offices in the metropolis on the Isar, among them Swiss Re, one of the world s leading reinsurers. The insurance industry employs around 29,000 people in Munich alone, more than in any other German city. Across Bavaria, about 65,000 people work for insurance companies. Of that number, more than 12,000 work in the two additional major Bavarian insurance locations Nuremberg and Coburg. Along with HUK- Coburg, one of the most important German automotive insurers, and the Nürnberger Versicherungsgruppe among other things, in second place among occupational disability insurers additional leading German insurance companies are domiciled in these cities. Nürnberger Versicherungsgruppe Employees worldwide: 37,000 Premium incomes: 2.9 bn. euros HUK-Coburg Employees worldwide: 8,700 Premium incomes: 4.2 bn. euros *rounded data from

6 Banking: A Leader in the Sector The Bavarian Banking Center at a Glance* Bavaria plays a central role in German banking. Overall, the banks domiciled here have lent funds totaling about 730 billion euros to business and consumers. That s more than 15 percent of the total lending volume of German banks. Munich banks alone represent one-tenth of the entire business volume of the German credit services industry. That makes the Bavarian state capital the second most important banking center in the Federal Republic. Overall, about 50 banks are headquartered here including two of Germany s largest banks, Bayerische Hypo- und Vereinsbank AG (HVB), which in 2005 merged with the Italian UniCredit to form the first truly European bank, and Bayerische Landesbank. In fact, about 160 banks, including numerous foreign banks, are present in Munich. This underscores the international significance of the financial center. Bavaria itself is the home market for around 530 banks, including more than 80 savings banks and just under 370 cooperative banks. This means well over 20 percent of all German banks are based in Bavaria substantially more banks than in any other federal state, and even more than in the banking country, Switzerland. The banks employ approximately 126,000 people. Traditionally, Bavarian banks play a major role in the mortgage business. For example, Munich banks issued around one-third of all mortgage bonds floated in Germany. Number of financial institutions: 530 private banks: 80 savings banks: 80 credit unions: 370 Employees: private banks: 32,000 saving banks: 58,000 credit unions: 36,000 Total assets: 984 bn. euros Total loan volume: 730 bn. euros * rounded data from

7 Munich s Innovations in Asset Management Asset Management: Value and Innovations First German investment company First German investment fund First mutual fund in Germany First German money market fund First exchange traded funds on the DAX Pioneer in total return bond funds In 1949, ADIG launched the first German fund company ever in the Bavarian state capital. Today, asset management companies held by Munich companies manage about 1,500 billion euros, one of the highest values worldwide. Among other factors, the high level is attributable to the innovative skills of Bavarian asset management companies. They have been successful in rapidly recognizing and creating trends, and in developing new products as needed that set the standards. Accordingly, the first open real estate fund and the first money market funds, for example, originated in Munich. And more recently, Munich companies helped exchange traded funds and total return bond funds break through in Germany. In addition, the industry is very actively pushing the introduction of REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). The high quality of the assets managers working in the Munich financial center is shown, among other things, in the fact that many of the funds managed by Bavarian companies distinguish themselves in the pertinent performance ratings. As a result, they are trusted by private and institutional investors from unrelated sectors and even finance companies. The financial center also has major importance for closed funds some of Germany s largest initiators of this industry are at home here

8 Stock Exchange: Success with Innovations The Munich Stock Exchange provides an ideal combination of the traditional and the modern. Germany s third-largest exchange, founded as early as 1830, has developed into one of Europe s most innovative securities trading centers. Among other things, this is evident in the new SME segment, M:access, as well as Max-One, the trading system developed by the Munich Stock Exchange and introduced in This system guarantees the exchange will transact an order immediately and completely at the best price - and thus considers the needs of private investors in particular in a unique manner. This service is one of the reasons why the Munich Stock Exchange has recently been able to significantly expand its market share. Listed on the Munich Stock Exchange are a total of 2,700 German securities and government bonds, as well as 3,600 international securities from more than 60 countries. The advantages of Max-One are particularly evident when dealing with international securities. Also in this respect, the Munich Stock Exchange offers its clients a uniquely high-quality performance. Munich and its environs are also the headquarters of several securities trading firms, among them Baader Wertpapierhandelsbank and MWB Wertpapierhandelshaus. These are among the leading securities trading banks in the Federal Republic and are some of the institutions that guarantee the advantages of Max-One. Munich Stock Exchange in Figures* Number of tradable securities: 4,300 number of domestic securities: 700 number of foreign securities from more than 60 countries: 3,600 Number of tradable government bonds: 2,000 Total revenue in 2005 in bn. euros: 15.4 securities: 3.7 bonds: 11.7 * rounded data from

9 Leasing and Factoring: The Market Leader The Munich metropolitan area is Germany s leading region for leasing. Of the approximately 430 major leasing companies in Germany with equity capital of at least 250,000 euros, just under 120 are located in and around Munich, and 48 of those are headquartered here. The three most important of them alone Kommanditgesellschaft Allgemeine Leasing (KGAL), LHI Leasing and Hannover Leasing together administer a total investment volume of approximately 66 billion euros. In addition, they are among the top German issuers of closed funds and are consequently based in the most important market for these financial products in Germany. Private Equity and Venture Capital: The Most Popular Venture Capital Center The Munich metropolitan area is also among the leading factoring locations in Germany. Two reasons for this are Eurofactor AG, the market leader for import factoring in Germany, and Siemens Financial Services, the fastest growing German factoring supplier overall in Bavaria is the most important German federal state for the venture capital and private equity industry. Around 50 VC and private equity companies have their headquarters in Munich. Furthermore, many other German and international companies in this sector have major offices in the Bavarian capital city. The very high number of venture capital companies is primarily attributable to the fact that they find an ideal environment in Munich and Bavaria. After all, Bavaria is one of the most important regions in the world in the fields of IT, medicine and biotechnology, and has an especially strong service sector at its disposal. That is why venture capital and private equity companies in Bavaria particularly have so many investment opportunities in industries that traditionally attract a lot venture capital and private equity money. In 2004, the risk capital issuers placed about 760 million euros in Bavaria. That is the highest annual amount they have ever invested in a single German federal state

10 Institutions: Support for the Economy Bavaria has developed from an agricultural state to a high-tech and service provider location in just a few decades, thanks to the strong performance and innovativeness of the companies located here. Essential support came from the Bavarian state government and local authorities, as well as regional and local institutions, trade associations and chambers of commerce. in Bavaria. The same holds true for the banking associations, trade associations and chambers of commerce, for example the Chambers of Commerce and Industry (IHK), and local chambers of crafts. They provide streamlined help to investors and local companies and thereby strengthen the financial center as well. The Bavarian state government created reliable and business-friendly conditions and thereby laid the essential political foundation so Bavaria could develop into one of the premier business locations in Europe. Similarly, public institutions like the economic and employment departments of the cities and communities as well as Invest in Bavaria, the settlement and location marketing initiative of the Bavarian ministry of economic affairs, essentially contribute to the fact that a particularly business- and innovation-friendly climate can prevail 18
