Northern European Experts.

Independent. International. Mid-Market. Almost every advisor in the corporate finance industry claims these characteristics to be amongst their strengths. So do we. But then, what exactly makes us different?
MCF Corporate Finance is an M&A advisory firm, which not only oversees many mandates in the northern part of Europe and runs offices in Hamburg, Helsinki, London and Stockholm but also advocates the values of the nordic culture: our clients and long-term relationships are at the heart of all we do.

We invest a lot of time and energy to understand and respect personal interests, needs and sensitivities of all stakeholders. We founded our firm with the explicit intention to provide the highest quality advice and secure the most valuable deal for our clients. So we often look for unconventional solutions. If you start to think about MCF you should think about a insightful partner, sustainable growth, out of the box thinking and cross-border transactions.

True to our tag line: We invest in relationships.

Our Principles.

We work in accordance with the following statements:

  1. The concerns of our clients are at the heart of what we do.
  2. Trust, confidentiality and integrity are the cornerstones of our client relationships.
  3. Teamwork is essential and always comes before personal interests.
  4. For every project we arrange a team that covers the required expertise and resources.
  5. We promote out of the box thinking to secure the best deal for our clients.
  6. We work in a way that develops long-term relationships with our clients.
  7. We care for our employees and support their further education and career development.

4 Offices. 1 Team.

We offer a breadth of experience as well as specialist industry knowledge across all our offices. Therefore projects will always be managed by the MCF partner with expertise to advise on the transaction. Our work is based on trust and total discretion. We are committed to the policy of integrity and customer satisfaction. Additionally we work exempt from any conflicts of interests.

On behalf of our clients we supervise the entire M&A process – from initial contact to final closing. For sell- side transaction this requires market analysis and research to evaluate the best strategy before we identify and approach potential buyers and targeted companies. Due diligence assessments and final contract negotiations are also overseen. With the same high standards we represent clients on buy-side transactions to investigate and approach particular acquisition targets. We always prepare thoroughly, to ensure that we address the best contact with the right message and negotiation strategy.
