Operative Business Ownership

Sample cases

» A client wanted to expand her consultancy business into Switzerland. She was looking for experts to help her establish the company and run banking services. We introduced her to a local lawyer who established a Swiss GmbH which required less capital. The managing director established a bank account for the Swiss company at Berenberg. Berenberg issued a letter of credit on which our client could buy a company share of a competitor. The transaction was made through an escrow account at Berenberg. 

» A third-generation shipowner has been a client of Berenberg for some years. He wanted to expand his fleet and was looking for financing possibilities for a three-year-old handy-size vessel. The Entrepreneurs Desk introduced him to our commercial shipping department in Hamburg. Along with further documentation and financial information furnished by us, he received funding for his new project.
