DSW Conferences

Bi-annually, DSW hosts a International Investors' Conference which especially addresses foreign institutional investors and other organisations from all over the world.

The conferences give information on recent developments in the Corporate Governance System in Germany and in Europe. Speeches are held in English. DSW invites keynote speakers from Germany and abroad.


This year, the DSW/Better Finance International Investors' Conference was held on November 29 in Wiesbaden.


Under the headline "European Capital Markets Union" investors, board members and other financial market participants discussed topics like boardroom best practices, investors' expectations from board members, improvements through digitalisation, directors' pay as well as legal remedies for Volkswagen investors.

Keynote speeches were delivered by Steven Maijoor (ESMA), Niall Bohan (EU Commission), Manfred Gentz (German Corporate Governance Committee), and Gregor Pottmeyer (Deutsche Börse).
