Evli Corporate Finance is an independent firm offering financial advice with a focus on clients and business in Finland and Sweden. We are a team of 20 professionals with offices in Helsinki and Stockholm. We offer a global reach through our international network and we often couple our financial advice with advice from our network of industrial advisors. Our senior partners have worked as a team for 20 years. Our aim is to build lasting relations with our clients closely following their development.
We consider ourselves as generalists but have over the years worked extensively within healthcare, consumer goods, IT and technology as well as mining and raw material. Our clients range from entrepreneurs and small businesses to private equity firms and large corporations. Being part of one of Finland’s leading asset management firms, we offer our clients an inroad to an extensive number of various investors, in the Nordics and internationally, as well as a broad financial competence. Due to our independence we can provide objective advice free from any other competing interest.
We advise our clients when buying a business, selling a business or merging with another business. We analyze, strategize, plan and execute the transaction process. We leverage on our experience from a couple of hundred transactions over the last 20 years.
We advise our clients when acting in the public market such as equity financing for companies. We advise the buyer, or the target company, when a public tender offer is being made. We act as lead advisor when a company wants to list in Finland or Sweden. We offer strategic advice to owners and boards and we do valuations and fairness opinions.
We provide independent advice to public or private companies on raising, refinancing and restructuring of debt. We have an experienced Debt Advisory team that focus on delivering the best financing outcomes for our clients, with close contacts to debt providers and deep understanding of the credit process.
We cater for and develop our people and business in order to secure a stable team and long-lasting client relationships. We call it Sustainable Corporate Finance. We have an entrepreneurial business origination always followed by professional execution. Our senior professionals are present throughout the entire project. To be close to our clients and constantly follow their development is our priority. We think it is important to get to know our clients personally, so we constantly arrange, and participate in different sport events such as triathlon, swimming and biking.

We believe in the power of healthy team work and long-standing relations. For us an important part of this is Evli Triathlon Challenge. Within this initiative we spend a lot of time with colleagues and clients biking, swimming and running. It is very energizing to develop together also outside normal business. We dare to say that Evli Triathlon Challenge has turned into being an integral part of normal business.
