About us

We are a leading UK investment bank

that puts long-term success above short-term gain, helping good companies succeed and delivering outstanding results. We have three business areas, but we act as one Peel Hunt. Our integrated approach combines expert research and distribution, a range of investment banking services, and an execution services hub that provides liquidity to the UK capital markets.
