Financial Times Deutschland
Launched in the year 2000, the younger sibling of the famous City of London daily is now compulsory reading for Germany's business community. Its adherence to British press traditions, and in particular the announcement of its preference in the run-up to elections, distinguishes it from other German dailies.
In January 2008, Financial Times Deutschland became the exclusive property of Gruner + Jahr, a subsidiary of Bertelsmann. Its website, which is modeled on the British Financial Times site, is Germany's second largest business news source on the Internet. Only Handelsblatt has greater web presence.
