Message From The CEO

The Astrup Fearnley Group

The Astrup Fearnley Group dates back to the year 1869 when its founder, Mr. Thomas Fearnley, established a shipbroking and agency business in Christiania, as the city of Oslo was known in those days. Our company has evolved considerably since its establishment in 1869, driven by the changing needs of the global marketplace and an increasingly sophisticated and diverse client base.

Today, 150 years later, the Astrup Fearnley Group is a leading, independent and global provider of brokerage, research, financial and advisory services to investors and companies involved in shipping, offshore, energy, aquaculture, and real estate industries. This legacy is a success story created by generations of deeply dedicated professionals, and generations of the Astrup Fearnley family.

At Astrup Fearnley, we are committed to ensuring that everything we do – whether it be the advice we provide, the transactions we facilitate, or the interactions in which we engage – are executed with great integrity, relevance, and teamwork, and in accordance with best business practice and high ethical standards. These overarching business principles are of such fundamental importance for our business that they deserve to be described in more detail.

At Astrup Fearnley we build and maintain trust by conducting every element of our business to the highest standards of integrity.

At Astrup Fearnley we provide timely and valuable services by anticipating the rapidly changing needs of our clients and their markets.

At Astrup Fearnley we value extraordinary individual performance, but our proudest moments arise from the teamwork of our professionals for the benefit of our clients.

Experience has shown that if we as a firm can deliver as above, then our own success will follow.

I welcome you to get to know more about The Astrup Fearnley Group, what we stand for, and how we can add value to your commercial decisions.

Sincerely yours,

Even Matre Ellingsen
Astrup Fearnley | Group CEO
