Zeitschrift für das gesamte Kreditwesen: New government must set impulses per share (in German)
Germany is still far behind in terms of the number of its shareholders in an international comparison, criticises Dr Christine Bortenlänger. However, shares with their attractive returns are crucial for successful asset accumulation and retirement provision. The next federal government must therefore improve the equity culture in Germany with a more equity-friendly policy. An important lever is the modernisation of the German pension system by including an accumulation system with shares. If this succeeds, the equity culture in Germany will experience a significant boost.
