Charles Peel and Christopher Holdsworth Hunt established Peel Hunt in 1989. The business was floated on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) of the London Stock Exchange in 2000.
Then a year later Belgian Bank KBC buys Peel Hunt. In 2010, there was a management buyout from KBC to establish Peel Hunt LLP and then in 2021 Peel Hunt listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) of the London Stock Exchange.
In 2021, we moved into our new office at 100 Liverpool Street, a ground-breaking net zero carbon development and one of the top 1% of sustainable office buildings in the UK.
After MiFID II was introduced we have been growing our distribution reach and we hit 1000 research relationships (in 2017 we had 420).
In the annual Extel Survey (now Institutional Investor) Peel Hunt ranked 1st for Research (a title we still hold).
