has cemented The ECB, the low Interest rates in Europe. That is not likely to change so rapidly. Hard times for savers – but there are ways out, says the banking house Metzler. In addition, the Board of management is developing well.
The Frankfurt banker Emmerich Müller is not attributed to foresee a turnaround in interest rates in Europe. “We have to adjust to the fact that real interest rates will still be negative,” said the for the operational business Partner responsible for the 1674 based Metzler Bank. “We have to do it with a load distribution to the detriment of savers and investors.”

Many economists interpreted the recent decision of the Central Bank to put in, starting in April, only 60 billion instead of 80 billion euros in government bonds and other securities, but at least as a first Signal for a slow return to normality.
Müller says: “It is premature, on an exit of the ECB from its ultra-loose monetary policy.

Overall, the banking house Metzler is with the past financial year, satisfied: “We continue to grow organically.”
Müller added: “We have built in the past two years, about 100 people across all areas and are now with a staff strength of over 800. This is also an expression of our optimism in a difficult environment.” For 2015, the Institute had paid, despite a slight drop in profits, to 2.43 (previous year: 2,53) million euros the usual 2.3 million Euro dividend to the owners.
