We offer a wide range of banking and advisory service in the areas of Equities, Corporate Finance and Financial Markets.


Berenberg has become one of the most sought-after advisors on the European stock markets.

We have one of Europe’s largest research teams, covering 770 companies. 

Our research provides the foundation for our successful stock picking approach. Equities are selected completely independently based not only on solid, detailed analysis of company financials and management expertise, but also on a deep understanding of current issues that can affect the stock price. 

Thorough analysis of the competitive environment allows us to identify well-managed companies whose market position will enable them to generate long-term, steadily increasing capital yields.

With 60 staff in nine offices in Europe, the UK and the US, we have one of the largest sales teams for European equities. Institutional Sales focuses on the needs of our 800 institutional clients, with integrity and high service quality as defining parameters. We set great store by getting to know clients and their investment preferences in detail, and pay individual, personal attention to each investor. 

Our sales team is made up of specialists as well as generalists, so that clients have access to excellent industry knowledge and deep insights into the respective markets. 

Direct access to international funds managers gives us great opportunities to execute and place capital increases and ensures that our small, mid, and large-cap clients all see us as a capable and trustworthy partner. 

We further support our clients’ investment decisions by bringing them together with the executives of listed companies, at management roadshows as well as on company visits for which we handle organisation and logistics.

Berenberg is one of Europe’s leading banks for equity trading on electronic exchanges. Since we serve almost all European institutional clients as well as many worldwide institutions, a great many of our trades are done OTC (over the counter) and thus with little disruptive impact. 

We are a member of the German Stock Exchange, Italian Stock Exchange, NYSE Euronext, SIX Swiss Exchange, Vienna Stock Exchange, London Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ OMX Nordic.

In addition to direct stock exchange memberships, Berenberg also offers executions on almost all pan-European stock exchanges through access products and multilateral trading facilities (MTFs) like Chi-X and Turquoise. 

Our trading team is based in Hamburg and New York, and is made up of seasoned traders with many years of professional experience and direct access to stock exchanges. We also offer clients the use of our Algo technologies. 

Like our Equity Sales team, our Sales Trading team is distributed across several locations, in order to offer worldwide institutional fund and hedge fund managers and trade departments first-class assistance in executing their trades.

Corporate Broking
Chris Bowman
Telephone: +44 20 3753-3021

Private companies offer increasingly interesting investment opportunities for investors. At the same time there is a broader interest in unlisted investments from an increasingly diverse range of investors.  With a strong broking heritage, the art of matching suitable investors to clients is where we add substantial value. 

We aim to maximise reach and enhance relevance by taking a data driven analytical approach that utilises the breadth and depth of the Berenberg platform to optimise outcomes for our clients.  Mainly acting for corporates with growth capital requirements, we provide bespoke solutions to access the full range of potential investors including PE, VC, CVC, FO, HNW and institutional investors in an often opaque investor landscape.
