Financial services

FIH Partners operates on a fully independent basis from our parent company FIH, a Danish investment bank. As one of only a few independent financial advisors in Denmark, we offer our unbiased advisory services to domestic and foreign banks and insurance companies. Our expertise in this sector is unrivalled in Denmark.

In recent years, we have advised on the largest and most complex bank and insurance transactions in Denmark, including:

  • Forenet Kredit, the association and majority shareholder of Nykredit A/S, in the sale of shares to a consortium headed by PFA and with PensionDanmark, PKA, AP Pension and MP Pension as co-investors (deal value EUR 1.56bn).
  • Realdania's on the ABB of 52m shares in Danske Bank A/S.
  • The delisting and sale of Forstædernes Bank in a structured auction to Nykredit, a leading Danish mortage institute and lending bank (deal value EUR 244m).
  • The sale of FIH Erhvervsbank, our parent company, to a group of institutional investors including ATP, PFA, Folksam and CPDyvig (deal value EUR 255m).
  • The acquisition of Nykredit Forsikring by Gjensidige Forsikring, the fourth largest Nordic insurance group (deal value EUR 336m).

FIH Partners has also advised on a number of capital market transactions involving Realdania’s ownership in Danske Bank, including their recent accelerated bookbuild of EUR 733m worth of Danske Bank shares. Previously we have advised Realdania in connection with their participation in Danske Bank capital increases.

Other recent activities include fairness opinions for a number of asset management transactions, including the sale of Danske Invest Administration to Danske Bank Group and the sale of Nordea Invest to Nordea Group.

Before establishing FIH Partners, our partners advised on a series of bank and insurance transactions, most notably the merger of Realkredit Danmark and Danske Bank and Realkredit Danmark’s acquisition of BG Bank.

We also provide on-going advisory services to a number of institutional investors and other key stakeholders in the industry on divestment and acquisition opportunities.
