Information that makes a difference.
"Like the German economy, Handelsblatt is European and international in its scope. The basic outlook of the newspaper is a liberal one, and its overall orientation is towards the social market economy. The editorial team adheres to a strict self-imposed rule of journalistic independence. Handelsblatt is committed to critical, analytical journalism. The editorial concept is geared towards up-to-date news, exclusive reports, reliability and objectivity – in short, to providing information that makes a difference.“
Bernd Ziesemer, Editor-in-Chief of Handelsblatt

Handelsblatt is the leading German-language financial and business newspaper. Around 200 reporters and correspondents around the world have become a byword for critical and analytical journalism and exclusive up-to-date reports on national and global events backed up by in-depth research. Handelsblatt readers belong to the decision-makers and opinion leaders in German business and society.

With a sold circulation of 143,929 copies (IVW/2004 annual average), Handelsblatt targets more than half a million readers every day (ma II/2004).
