History and profile

Focus Money was first published on 30 March 2000. Its slogan was "Fakten machen Geld" (meaning "Facts make money" in English). The magazine is part of Hubert Burda Media and is published by Focus Magazin Verlag weekly on Wednesdays. Its headquarters is in Munich.

The magazine covers articles on business, politics, companies, finance, tax, law, investment, insurance, telecommunications, motoring and careers. Its target audience is decision makers in business and in society. It annually publishes a list of major German tax consultancy and audit firms.
