Hauck & Aufhäuser Investment Banking started as an idea in a London Tapas Bar in 2008, based on the strong belief that with great employees, long-term relationships with clients must be possible in our industry. Founded at the peak of the financial crisis by three friends in Hamburg, HAIB has grown into a 60-person entity with offices in Hamburg, Frankfurt, London, Paris, and Zürich.
We are entrepreneurial in heart and soul. Our core principle for crafting unique equity stories together resides on a qualified mix between proven experience, out-of-the-box thinking, and passion. Outstanding efforts focusing on our clients’ benefit and tailor-made solutions are the purpose of our daily business activities - "no" is not an option.
We are an intrinsically motivated team with a solution-oriented approach and outstanding enthusiasm: It is all about saying yes rather than no. Looking up rather than looking down. Being open-minded rather than narrow-minded.
We combine the highest quality service of a well-established private bank on the one side with fast processes and flat hierarchies within an agile organizational structure on the other side. This unique mixture has made us a small but powerful unit with a global market presence.
Our clients are leading Mid Cap Companies within the DACH region as well as Investment Funds, Hedge Funds, Private Equity Investors, Family Offices and Asset Managers. Long-term orientation & Sustainability, Partnership & Trust, Communication & Transparency as well as excellent Performance are our key drivers for stable client relationships.
