The Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht – BaFin) has now established a special contact address for financial services firms wishing to move their registered office or operations to Germany. You may submit your enquiries to BaFin via firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also use the contact form if you would like BaFin to contact you directly. BaFin will respond to all enquiries within two business days.
This new contact facility is particularly aimed at firms considering relocation from the United Kingdom to continental Europe due to Brexit. The new contact address can, of course, be used by all foreign financial firms interested in Germany as a financial centre and in the supervision BaFin provides.
