Expats in Germany

Hi guys,

Any expats in Germany, specifically Munich, on this board? Would be cool to organize some drinks/ happy hours with like-minded people who moved here recently and don't know anyone.

There surely are, but you'd have to specify in between Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich as all 3 have some form of finance activity.

Networked through linkedin with an analyst who got me an internship interview. From there on out it was like with any IB job - do well in internship and get a return offer. Got lucky that my firm does not require German proficiency

Hi mate, may I ask what firm you are at which doesn't require German proficiency? I'm currently working in Frankfurt outside of IB, but have prior IB experience from an English speaking country so am really interested in how you came across this role. Feel free to PM :)

Would love to get your perspective on lateraling from a U.S. firm to Germany at the associate and above level.

Not the greatest. High income earners (i.e., all investment bankers) are taxed about 45% on both base and bonus.

This has nothing to do with your post but I will be flying into Frankfurt in mid April and have two weeks to travel before flying back home (leaving as well from Frankfurt).

What suggestions do you have? Are there any beer festivals/activities going on from mid-April through end of April in Frankfurt/Munich/Stuttgard/Prague/Interlaken etc that I must go to?

Feel free to PM if you dont want to blow up this post! Thanks in advance.
