Hedge Funds & the Germans

Following on from the previous (FSA Asset Management Conference) article, it was noted there was no German representation at the FSA Asset Management Conference (Germany and France have been seen to be the main proponents to push the Directive through). Another article in the press suggests that the German finance minister, Peer Steinbrueck, is not so conciliatory (and he didn’t like Gordon Brown’s bank bailout plans last year either).
