Handelsblatt, Germany’s leading financial daily, is temporarily moving its editorial headquarters during Brexit week to London. From Tuesday June 21 through Saturday June 25 our publisher Gabor Steingart, together with more than 50 journalists from Germany, will be working from central London.

Each evening from 5 p.m. we will hold a reception with high-level representatives from the world of business, politics, banking and media to discuss the referendum and its implications for Britain and Europe in on-the-record talks.

Among the guests will be Sigmar Gabriel, Germany’s vice chancellor and economics minister, Antonio Simoes, CEO of HSBC Bank plc., David McAllister, a German-Scottish member of the European Parliament, Stephanie Flanders, the chief strategist for the U.K. and Europe at JP Morgan Asset Management, as well as the former British trade minister, Lord Stephen Green. The talks will be followed each evening by drinks and music.

“Next week, we are moving the Handelsblatt newsroom from Germany to London to follow and analyze the historic events taking place in the financial heart of Europe. The modern newspaper marries inspiration and information, as well as substance and proximity, to deliver new relevance and immediacy to its readers,” said Gabor Steingart, the publisher and CEO of Handelsblatt Publishing Group.
