HISTORY

PCA Corporate Finance was founded and began its operations in 1992. As a partner-managed advisory firm, we have specialised in corporate finance advisory from the very beginning.

We were part of the German HSH Nordbank Group between 1999 and 2007. From 2004 to 2007 our name was first HSH Gudme Corporate Finance and then HSH Corporate Finance, being part of HSH's investment banking division which operated in eight countries: Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia.

In 2007, we returned to a partnership mode and readopted our original name, PCA Corporate Finance.

PCA became a member of Clairfield International in 2012.

In 2017, PCA celebrates its 25-year anniversary and Linnea Advisors merged with us.
