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.
Our goal has always been to be the best, not the biggest.
Our first investment is in people who do the right thing. We are a growing business with big ambitions and our collegiate environment means we all work together to get the best possible results for both the firm and our clients. In a highly regulated business, we strive to attain the highest ethical and professional standards supported by our strong internal culture.
Driven by technology
Technology is at the heart of everything we do – technical, analytical and driven by data. We maximise the productivity of our clients through the delivery of innovative solutions which are both secure and reliable.
Our international business is focused on helping investors engage with leading UK companies – from idea generation to engagement with company management to access to liquidity.
