We are one of the leading German research institutions based in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg. We see ourselves as the link between institutional investors and listed companies. We have a clear focus on small and medium-sized companies (small and mid-caps) from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We are independent and owner-managed.

We send out our research publications to more than 300 institutional investors, primarily from Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland. In addition to the structured accounts, we address asset management companies and family offices, which focus their investments on second-line stocks. We stand out for our frequent communication with decision-makers and investors. We provide listed companies with direct access to adequate investors by organising regular roadshows and well-directed field trips.

Our team consists of experienced analysts with a long-term track record, which they have earned at renowned national and international banks. We currently cover some 70 stocks from the MDAX, TecDAX, SDAX as well as selected second-line stocks.
