The desire to grow and develop has made us what we are today. We are an international advisor and trusted partner addressing client needs with responsibility, insight, vision and expertise. In a nutshell, accountability is our guiding principle.

Accountability is our guiding principle

Acting responsibly means acting thoughtfully

Since our founding in 1590, Berenberg has been run by personally liable partners – a principle that continues to be the cornerstone of a trusting relationship with our clients. If you are personally liable you don’t let yourself be steered by short-term success and emotions, but instead act thoughtfully. Our solid reliability is reflected in the stability of our leadership – since 1590 Berenberg has had only 40 Managing Partners.

Berenberg stands for honest and open advice. We have the courage to refuse a deal if we are not convinced of its benefits for the client. What counts for us is long-term success alongside our customers.

Acting responsibly means acting insightfully

Each of our clients has a different situation and background. Accordingly, as we help them expand on their success, accomplish their goals and meet their challenges, we do so with insight into their individual circumstances and needs, as expert advisers and service providers for the long term.

Our staff provide individual consulting that takes into account all of the client’s financial and personal goals, and we address all areas in which we are confident that we can offer our clients something more. That is our strength.

Acting responsibly means being visionary

Berenberg was founded in 1590 in Hamburg, and has worked internationally from the beginning. Our vision was always global. In addition to our headquarters in Hamburg, over the past few years we have built a strong presence in the financial centres of Frankfurt, London and New York.

With 1,500 employees, today Berenberg is represented at 18 locations in Europe and the US.

Through our Wealth Management, Asset Management, Investment Bank and Corporate Banking divisions we offer a breadth of expertise across asset classes and global regions. Our scale and reach allow us to combine our skills from around the Group to deliver the advice and access to financial markets you require.

Acting responsibly requires expertise

On today’s capital markets, comprehensive knowledge is indispensable. Berenberg invests in first-class expertise.

We have one of Europe’s largest equity research teams, and our portfolio managers oversee more than €40 billion for private and institutional investors. Our economists analyse the economic development of individual countries and are in demand as information sources for government and media.
