Geometric stable laws have become an object of attention in recent publications dealing with heavy tailed modeling. Many applications require understanding geometric stable laws on infinite dimensional spaces. This paper studies geometric stable laws on Banach spaces, and their place in the more general family of geometric infinitely divisible laws. Furthermore, we discuss rates of convergence in the domains of attraction of geometric stable laws in Banach spaces.
