Salonica is an independent investment bank headquartered in London.
As responsible bankers, we anticipate the challenges of the future. Above all, we are entrepreneurs, increasingly cognisant to economic, social and technological changes so that our clients are always connected with the real economy.
The initial Commercial Company of Salonica was established during the late 19th Century in the City of London, with offices in Salonica.
The firm grew out of establishing trading relationships with the Balkans and Anatolia, dealing in primary goods and thereafter diversifying its investment stock.
By the early 20th Century, the Company had played a key role in transforming Salonica into the leading port in the Eastern Mediterranean. This period was characterised by economic prosperity, cultural diversity and communal harmony.
After reviving itself in the early 21st Century, The Salonica Group was able to establish itself as a leading Investment Boutique committed to providing a professional and personal service to its clients. The Salonica Group continues to draw inspiration from its founding fathers, namely the values of diversity, innovation, integrity and connectivity.
Salonica Group’s founding principles are; integrity, sincerity and courage.
We aim to revive the spirit of intellectualism and creativity of the Eastern Mediterranean with 21st Century financial innovation and bespoke solutions.

Our history is embodied by entrepreneurship and posits sustainability at the core of our business model. We are committed to working with our clients to promote and achieve the Sustainability Development Goals.
A cross-disciplinary approach.
In an increasingly interconnected world, the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts. We believe that when creating financial value we must also seek to create social and environmental value – social and natural capital. Our goal is to begin incorporating non-financial measures of value into our performance models when working with all our stakeholders.
In this respect we have done much pioneering work with respect to social and natural capital, and are increasingly looking to develop investment propositions for these on a standalone basis.
