FAIR FRIENDS is already Germany’s largest sustainability trade fair. In 2019, it will boast another special highlight.

FAIR FRIENDS is already Germany’s largest sustainability trade fair. In 2019, it will boast another special highlight. With “The Marketplace for Sustainable Investments”, a well-established, high-calibre combination of trade fair and conference that adopts the latest Sustainable Finance Strategy of the German Government will come to Dortmund.

Initiated by the Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF) and the Fed-eral Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nu-clear Safety (BMU) and in close co-ordination with the Federal Ministry of Economy and Energy (BMWi), the responsible State Secretary Committee decided at the end of February to develop a Sustainable Finance Strategy of the German Government. The objective is to develop Germany into a leading Sustainable Finance location. The concept includes the development of a communication strategy to raise awareness of Sustainable Fi-nance. According to the German Government’s assessment, Sustainable   Finance can make a contribution to achieving the 17 
Global Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, and the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement of 2015 whilst maintaining financial stability.

FAIR FRIENDS 2019 will adopt that approach on 5 September with the “Marketplace for Sustainable Investments”. Over the last five years, Qualitates GmbH, Germany’s first MiFID invest-ment firm acting as a so-called liability umbrella for tied agents and focusing on sustainability, has created, organised and suc-cessfully expanded the “Marketplace”.   As an investment ser-vices licence holder, Qualitates GmbH allows experienced tied agents to give investment advice and is a member of the Sus-tainable Investments Forum. Dr. Marcel Malmendier, Managing Director of Qualitates GmbH, said: “The ‘Marketplace’ is one of the most important trade fair and conference formats covering the Sustainable Finance topic. Within the scope of FAIR FRIENDS, it will further expand its political and economic im-portance in the future.”
 
In 2019, the ‘Marketplace’ will have various topic areas where not only big and international companies but also small pio-neers will present themselves. The entire range of companies will be presented, including those that were already represented at ‘The Marketplace’ during the last five years. There will be topic areas for insurance companies, investment companies offering open-ended investment funds, issuing houses with shareholdings, green banks, denominational banks and foundations with interesting ideas.  A new feature is that green start-ups can also present themselves there.

All exhibiting companies will present themselves, as usual, in innovative and communicative formats. Trade visitors consisting of financial investment advisers, founders and institutional investors can get a good overview of the status quo and the trends in the sector on that day.

Besides the presentation of investment opportunities, there will also be a focus on special topics. In 2019, there will be a focus on green old-age pension schemes and company pension schemes in order to specifically address insurance brokers and get them enthusiastic about sustainable investments.

From Friday to Sunday, i.e. 6 to 8 September, FAIR FRIENDS will offer trade visitors and consumers the entire product range of fair and sustainable trade with attractive products and ser-vices and concepts for sustainable lifestyles in Halls 2 and 3. FAIR FRIENDS is also a well-established purchasing platform for retailers and specialised dealers.
