Gabler Verlag, 1235 pp, €149.95, ISBN 978-3-8349-1989-2

In Germany, all publicly traded companies are required to prepare IFRS financial statements. Many other companies provide IFRS financial statements on a voluntary basis. Companies and their advisers must therefore master the IFRS. This commentary offers important advice in all matters of practice. The editors and authors have created a work that presents the International Accounting Standards in compact and solution-oriented fashion. Well-grounded and with many practical tips and examples of use, it provides all the information for a legally safe application of the IFRS.

Gehwald, Markus, Naumann, Stefan (eds.), Investmentfonds – eine Branche positioniert sich [Mutual funds - an industry positions itself]

Gabler Verlag, 262 pp, €54.95, ISBN 978-3-8349-2659-3

The book is aimed at fund, sales and marketing managers in the fund industry. It shows how, particularly after the experiences of the financial-market crisis, important decisions in terms of product visibility and customer service can create competitive advantages and investor confidence. Investment funds offer tremendous advantages over asset classes with higher complexity (for example, derivative financial instruments). High-ranking experts in the industry use innovative approaches to show how fund companies and also consultants can realize these opportunities. Discussion contributions from the management level of the BVI (Bundesverband Investment und Asset Management e.V.) make this book required reading.
