ValueTrust was established in 2007 as Value-Trust Financial Advisors GmbH by former employees in the corporate finance division of KPMG.  ValueTrust was part of the Duff & Phelps Group from 2007 to the middle of 2013, an international leading consulting firm for financial advisory and investment banking services.

After being acquired by an international private equity syndicate and the delisting of Duff & Phelps in the spring of 2013, ValueTrust separated in the summer of 2013 and has continued since then with former senior employees of KPMG and Duff & Phelps. 

Today ValueTrust Financial Advisors SE acts out of offices in Munich, Frankfurt, Zurich and Vienna.
