Starting January 2013, the investor magazine Börse Online will be published by FV Börsen Verlag, a 100% affiliated company of the German Finanzen Verlag which publishes the magazines Euro, Euro am Sontag and Artinvestor. As part of this transaction, ten financial editors from Gruner + Jahr, Frankfurt, will be offered a job at the new location in Munich.
