MainFirst SICAV Luxembourg - http://www.mainfirst.com
 
MainFirst Group is a financial services business, offering institutional brokerage, asset management and corporate advisory services from their offices in Frankfurt, London, Milan, Munich, New York, Paris and Zurich. The Group was formed in 2001 and now employs more than 160 professionals; an independent organisation, wholly-owned by management and staff.

"In the beginning we were seven people who liked to deal in stocks and shares and dreamed of providing our clients with fair and independent service through our own company".  This was the opening sentence from their first brochure on the opening of MainFirst in October 2001. Since then much has changed – but at the same time that sentence still represents much of what MainFirst is still about.  They have grown in size, broadened the business model and are now strongly represented in their offices outside their Frankfurt base.  Their independence was a key foundation stone and is still a vital part of the group’s way of working: an independent research product for their institutional brokerage clients, independent corporate advice from their corporate advisory business – and their own independence: MainFirst is still entirely owned by its management and employees.


MainFirst's institutional brokerage business continues to grow thanks to the strong and consistent support from their clients; their research footprint and their market presence which now reaches out across significant parts of Europe.  Their asset management business continues to grow its specialist portfolio of award-winning investment products.Whilst their corporate advisory business has already established a track record of executing prestigious mandates for corporate and private equity clients.


Although MainFirst they comprise of  one team of employees and shareholders together, a clear and structured divide is kept between their different business units and their different client constituencies.Their brokerage business does not place initial public offerings of shares – they remain committed to the principle of visibly independent research; their corporate advisory business is better placed to offer independent advice because it is not trying to cross-sell any of the Bank’s other products.  On the other hand their asset management business faces the broad sell-side community, and if it chooses to use their brokerage services it does so on an arms’ length basis.  In all their business they know, as they have always known, that MainFirst can only exist if their clients continue to value their services to them - as the founding brochure set out back in 2001: "Our success can only be measured in terms of theirs".
