Our Dedication


Our independence is key to our client proposition. Kempen Corporate Finance’s neutrality comes from the fact that we do not finance businesses ourselves, guaranteeing that our advice is independent, objective, and always in the client’s best interest. 

Merchant Banking


Kempen consistently takes a leading position in the market for our specializations, resulting in enviable returns thanks to our ability to join forces with a diverse group of clients from around the world. Asset managers, pension funds, insurers, hedge funds, and some of the largest institutional investors across the map have drawn from our expertise in local alpha, European real estate, infrastructure, and European life sciences. Clients value our trading and execution skills as well as our research. Our expertise has earned us top ratings from prestigious organizations such as Thomson Reuters Extel – just one example of how we have become a powerful niche player in the international banking arena. 

Corporate finance

Kempen Corporate Finance performs a range of transactions for investments beginning around €25 million and going upwards to over €2 billion. We oversee the interests of corporate clients, private equity parties, family offices, management teams, DGAs, regulators, ministries, and municipalities and are proud of the diversity of clients who have joined us. 

Dedication and expertise

Equity Capital Markets

Our securities and our corporate finance departments join forces in our bespoke equity capital markets proposition. We offer independent advice and assistance in managing all processes required for the successful raising of equity, either via an IPO or via a secondary offering, or a selldown of shares. We help you find the right investors for your transaction and have extensive experience across Europe in a wide variety of transaction structures such as IPOs, capital increases, secondary offerings, and equity-linked transactions. Kempen Equity Capital Markets can act either in the syndicate, for example as a global coordinator or bookrunner, taking full responsibility for the marketing, distribution, and pricing of a transaction, or as an independent adviser, assisting our client in managing a syndicate of banks for a transaction. 

Our focus is on your success

We can only win if our clients win. And although we are not the largest merchant bank, we have enough scale to have an impact and are nimble enough to respond swiftly in a constantly changing market. Therefore, we are always focused, take ownership and are connected to the world around us. This entrepreneurial spirit is at the core of our culture. We want to be the best we can be and keep developing ourselves and our teams.

Turning selectiveness and dedication into value
