Berenberg can trace its roots back to 1590 when the brothers Hans and Paul Berenberg established their firm in Hamburg. It is the oldest owner-managed private bank in Germany and one of the oldest banks in the world.
With assets under management of €30.1 billion and 1,150 employees, we are one of the leading private banks in the world. In the fifth century of our existence, we are a modern, dynamic private bank with a clear strategic positioning.
Berenberg offers its clients individual services through four divisions:
Private Banking: This division serves wealthy private investors and families, in many cases across generational lines. This is a complex task involving great responsibility, which we gladly accept by offering advice with proven competence and continuity. We employ opportunity-oriented risk management to maintain and increase the wealth of our clients.
Investment Banking: Our broad-based Investment Banking division focuses on service and client operations in the fields of equities, financial markets and M&A advisory services. Our Research department analyses over 500 European equities, and we also accompany IPOs, capital increases and special transactions, and provide advice for mergers and acquisitions.
Asset Management: Quantitative investment strategies implemented in asset management accounts and retail and special-purpose funds are at the heart of our Asset Management division. The customer base consists primarily of institutional investors like insurers, pension funds, banks and foundations.
Corporate Banking: We advise Mittelstand clients on the selection and implementation of optimum financing structures and offer individual advice in selected fields. We maintain specific expertise in special segments like shipping and China.
