MP Banki leading Icelandic Investment Bank
Following the financial crisis of 2008, Iceland’s successful recovery remains a point of reference for countries with past and current economic challenges. Strong leadership and financial stability ensured MP Banki was the only privately-held bank in Iceland to emerge intact from the country’s financial crisis.
MP Banki offers comprehensive solutions in Asset Management and Private Banking for private entities and investors. The Bank is a broker-dealer of securities on domestic and international markets, and provides all major services in the field of Corporate Finance, including financing for clients.
The Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Iceland and China has created opportunities within the financial sector for both countries. MP Banki aims to be the first point of contact for Chinese investors looking for investment opportunities in Iceland.
“We have already established contacts in China with Chinese financial institutions and energy companies”, says Sigurdur Atli Jonsson, CEO of MP Banki. “There is a great deal of interest from China in the opportunities to be found within the Icelandic economy and we are playing an important role in advising investors looking at the resources and energy sectors. Our Corporate Finance team has specialized in the Icelandic energy sector and the Bank has participated in projects in China and South East Asia. Our location in the North Atlantic and our close proximity to both Europe and the Arctic provides investors with a spring-board from Iceland into key regions of interest”.
MP Banki’s dedication to support the growth and success of their customers remains at the heart of the Bank’s offering. World Finance, a leading financial magazine, recently awarded MP Banki ‘Best Investment Management Company in Iceland 2014’.
“We understand our clients’ cross-border transaction requirements and are well positioned to build on our hard-earned reputation for success after the crisis,” says Jonsson. “As we strengthen our relations in China, we intend to ensure MP Banki is recognized as the first choice for the Chinese financial sector and investors looking at the Icelandic market”.
