Our history

Finova was established in 2005 as Jarlsberg Capital Partners and started its business as an independent and partner-owned financial adviser with a focus on corporate brokerage – pure advice in connection with the purchase and sale of businesses. A few years later, the company changed its name to Jarlsberg Partners, and it began a period in which the company focused mainly on the development of value of companies. Strategic advice and active ownership to maximise the value of the companies. 

In 2020, the company expanded its operations, increasing its focus on corporate transactions and financing. Together with the consulting firm Ontogeny Group, Finova has established Ontogeny Corporate Finance, a company that seeks full-fledged concessions as securities firms.

Finova has a lot of experience and knowledge in the service areas, and through its cooperation with Ontogeny Group, the company is well equipped for further growth.
