Who we are

Engaged, professional straight-talkers who know clients matter most

Liberum was started in September 2007 to provide a different style of broking in an industry where clients and staff were treated poorly by other institutions.

Clients wanted to work with those they could trust, who knew their needs and who worked through thick and thin. They didn’t want fair-weather friends.

Staff wanted a place that keenly sought their ideas, trusted their convictions and encouraged their development.

Since then we’ve navigated a steady course and grown alongside our clients. Now we’re adding new analysts and sales staff to meet client needs, expanding our coverage and innovating in the creation and delivery of unique insight for investors.
