The Americans are coming. With his gigantic Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate behind him, legendary investor Warren Buffett is looking for further acquisitions in Europe after purchasing the German motorcycle accessories specialist Louis.
These are just a few examples of the fact that U.S. interest in German and European companies has increased significantly. Motivations for the purchases are highly diverse. But they have one thing in common: They are a positive sign, and we should welcome the buyers from beyond the Atlantic.
These sorts of investments fundamentally support our growth and hence our prosperity as well.
Europe – and Germany in particular – should not wait for the Americans to come, but should actively seek their presence. This is because the prerequisites for U.S. companies to make acquisitions here are more favorable than ever.
