the unusual, the composite cross-cooperation of the Frankfurter Volksbank and the Taunus-Sparkasse has been Developed. Since a half year there is the first branch of this type now in the Taunus Village of Bad Soden-Neuenhain. In an interview with F. A. Z. reports, the two chairmen of the Board, Eva desire to Weber by the people's Bank, and Oliver Klink of the savings Bank in such issues for a long time encrusted Bank of the world now shows for this model anywhere surprisingly open – and that you are self-driving, the number of joint branches in the Corona-crisis, and even accelerated high want.
