Under European law, banks require authorisation by a supervisory authority before commencing their banking business or providing financial services. Authorisation to carry out these activities is obtained from the “home state authority”, i.e. the supervisory authority in the country where a bank has its head office. A bank that is authorised by its home state authority may also carry out banking activities in other EU member states by using the so-called EU-passport. 
Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co. KG has its head office in Germany. It is authorised by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) and subject to limited regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority, FCA number 222782. The regulatory system applying will therefore be different from that of the United Kingdom. Details about the extent of our regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority are available from us on request.

Information regarding transfers

In the case of transfers abroad and of separately commissioned express transfers the data contained in the transfer are remitted to the beneficiary's financial institution by the only financial messaging network active worldwide, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) based in Belgium. For reasons of safeguarding the system's reliability SWIFT temporarily saves the transaction data in its data processing centres in the Netherlands and in the US.

The motive for this information is a decision by data protection supervisory authorities taken in November 2006 with which these react to access by US authorities to transfer data in the data processing centre of SWIFT in the US for the purpose of combatting international terrorism.
