Caroline Heber and Christian Sternberg win the first prize of the DFI Writing Competition 2014

The paper „Over-the-Counter Derivative Markets in Light of the Regulation and Taxation“ by Dr. Caroline Heber and Christian Sternberg has been selected as the winning contribution of the DFI Writing Competition 2014.

The prize is awarded by the IBFD periodical „Derivatives and Financial Instruments” (DFI) to papers on Financial Transaction Taxes and, more specifically, concerning the impact of the newly proposed EU directive on this matter. The two research associates from the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance presented the winning article at the IBFD Conference on the Financial Transaction Tax on 17 February 2014 in Madrid. It will be published in DFI no. 3.

“The article gives a clear and well-researched technical analysis of EMIR (European Market Infrastructure Regulation) and FIT (Financial Transaction Taxes),” acknowledged the jury consisting of the DFI Editorial Board and chaired by Prof. Dr. Pasquale Pistone, the Acadamic Chairman of the IBFD. “In addition the contribution combines theory with practice and is interdisciplinary by focussing on the interaction between regulatory and tax laws. This is precisely what DFI stands for.”
