Financial Institutions

Connecting sources of capital with unique market opportunities, StormHarbour’s financial institutions group is embedded in the complex and ever-evolving banking, finance, asset management and insurance sectors.


Members of the financial institutions group have operated at the center of the financial services industry for the last thirty years.  We understand the complexity of the industry and the nuances of the market.  We deliver solutions tailored to the objectives of our financial institution clients and the specific market in which they operate.

As an independent firm, StormHarbour has no ties to any other organization and is free to provide completely objective advice.  At the same time, with established global distribution, we provide banks and financial institutions access to a leading sales and trading platform and a superior client solutions team.   

 Our honest, direct, research-based approach affords a comprehensive picture of the structural issues in a transaction. Our work is built on a well developed understanding of industry trends, market developments, credit analysis and financial/bank regulation.  Equally, StormHarbour’s highly specialized sales team allows us to find institutional and hedge fund investors who are suited to meet the complete capital needs of financial institutions.
