Peel Hunt expands global presence with launch of European platform

Today, we have announced that our European platform, headquartered in Copenhagen, is fully operational.  This milestone supports Peel Hunt’s strategic expansion beyond the UK, strengthening its competitive position across Europe. 

Peel Hunt Europe Fondsmaeglerselskab A/S (“Peel Hunt Europe”) fully reinstates the investment bank’s European distribution capability, facilitating the distribution of research, the trading of shares, and the promotion of investment banking deals into the region. Combined, these capabilities provide significant liquidity to investors, better insights to corporate clients and additional stability to Peel Hunt’s business. 

The new entity will be led by James Hipkiss, CEO of Peel Hunt International and CEO of Peel Hunt Europe. James will manage an eight-strong dedicated team whose expertise and regional insights will play a crucial role in delivering the benefits of Peel Hunt’s integrated offering and strengthening client relationships across the continent.

"The launch of our European operation marks a pivotal moment in our journey to expand our business beyond the UK, and underscores our commitment to offer a joined-up investment banking proposition on an international scale. I would like to thank colleagues across the group for their immense efforts and dedication over the last couple of years in bringing the Peel Hunt Europe project to fruition. We look forward to its success and the opportunities it presents for the bank, and our clients, as we expand our market leading offering in Europe."

Steven Fine Chief Executive of Peel Hunt

“I am excited to be working with an exceptional team to bring Peel Hunt’s European platform into operation. The creation of this entity will enable us to bring our integrated offering to bear across the continent, providing even more opportunities to our clients, and playing a key role in delivering on our international ambitions.”
