We are not only a traditional investment bank

We are an innovative player that brings in-depth sector research, knowledge of technology and a global network with insight about business opportunities to the table. We combine more than one hundred years of history in investment banking with an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for all things tech.

Our society is changing and technology drives that change. To find ideas and solutions that can shape our future, companies must be financed, continuously adapt themselves to new surroundings and develop solutions to problems that arise. We are here to provide capital, find solutions to challenges and negotiate in the best interest of our clients.

We use our industrial and technological knowledge, global network and passion for deal making to surpass our clients’ expectations. We want to create opportunities that can’t be found elsewhere and execute the best possible deals for our clients’ specific needs.

Our history

Initially, there were two companies. One with an unprecedented history in investment banking, tracing its roots back to 1915.

The other, only two years old but with high expectations of becoming a global dealmaker doing things in a slightly different way.

Fondsfinans was Norway’s oldest investment bank, run by the Must family. A well established and respected investment bank with an exceptional track record. In 2016, Fondsfinans reshaped its strategy to become a nicheoriented investment bank with core focus on Banking & Finance, Aquaculture, TMT and Industrials, all technology focused industries, in addition to real estate. With the new strategy, Fondsfinans was a perfect match with Beringer Finance.

Beringer Finance, on the other hand, was founded only recently, in 2014, as a startup tech M&A boutique. The Founder and CEO, Adalsteinn Johannsson, had a vision of bringing a group of entrepreneurs and people with indepth industry and M&A experience together to create a corporate finance firm that could fill a niche in the existing market.

The Must family and Adalsteinn Johannsson, best known as Alli, had known each other for a long time. In fact, the Must family backed Alli when he decided to start Beringer Finance. Soon, they saw how well the two companies would complement each other –  a merger was the logical next step. In June 2016 the merger was announced.

Today, there is one company, not only a traditional investment bank with long experience from initiating and executing deals, but also an innovative player that brings in-depth sector-research, knowledge of technology and a global network with insight about business opportunities to the table.
