    Goals / Remit

    BVI represents the interests of the German fund industry vis-à-vis politicians, supervisory authorities, and international institutions. BVI advocates sensible regulation of the fund business and fair competitive conditions. BVI’s 116 members manage assets of some EUR 4 trillion for retail investors, insurance companies, pension and retirement schemes, banks, churches, and foundations. With a share of 27%, Germany represents the largest fund market in the EU. BVI organises the industry's collective decision-making process - regardless of whether the members invest in securities or tangible assets, pursue active or passive strategies, specialise in administration or portfolio management, address institutional or private investors. BVI accompanies legislation in all political stages - via several hundred expert discussions per year, statements, named contributions, interviews and appearances at public conferences.

    Other activities

    BVI is committed to meeting the interests of its members in the regulatory environment. In particular, investment law (at EU level: UCITS Directive and AIFM Directive) is in the focus of BVI's lobbying activities. Certain aspects of capital market and banking law are also of importance for BVI members. In addition, the framework conditions for occupational and private pension provision, in which BVI member companies are increasingly involved, are becoming ever more relevant.
