Wolters Kluwer Financial Services, a provider of compliance and risk management solutions for the financial services industry, has opened an office in Frankfurt. The company entered the German financial services market last November with its first office in Cologne. At the heart of Germany’s financial centre, Frankfurt is a key location for the business’ growth.
“Many of our customers are based in Frankfurt so it was the logical next step to build up a presence here, shortly after our successful launch in Cologne,” said Werner Maislinger, regional sales director, Germany, at Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. “Moreover, we have reinforced our team by hiring two new colleagues and will look to further expand our business in the sector of regulatory reporting through Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ FRSGlobal business.”
FRSGlobal became part of Wolters Kluwer Financial Services in September 2010.
