Recently praised by the chief of Goldman Sachs, Germany’s financial capital is in pole position to gain banking jobs from the UK
Peter Ferres, founder-headteacher of Frankfurt’s Metropolitan school, knows a thing or two about London bankers: he used to be one. For seven years, Ferres worked as a managing director for Credit Suisse in the City, marshalling billion-dollar stock market flotations of emerging market companies.
In 2005, he chucked in his career in the Square Mile. After completing a teacher training course, he headed to Frankfurt’s Rödelheim district to found one of the city’s 13 international private schools.
