Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann to step down


Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann will lay down his office for personal reasons at the end of the year. “I have come to the conclusion that, after more than ten years, now is a good time to embark upon a new chapter – for the Bundesbank, but also for me personally,” Mr Weidmann explained. He said he owed thanks to his colleagues on the Governing Council of the ECB under the leadership of Christine Lagarde for the open and constructive atmosphere in the - at times - difficult discussions conducted over the past years.
