Who We Are

CIM Finance & Research Ltd is a Helsinki based financial advisory and fund management company founded in 2001. The founders are Messrs Heikki Masalin and Jorma Routti.

We develop and manage innovative financial instruments independently and powered by prominent financial institutions as well as public and private investors.

CIM Finance & Research Ltd has both its own personnel and some shared personnel with sister company, CIM Creative Industries Management Ltd (founded 2000).

The sister company manages CIM Venture Fund for Creative Industries L.P., which is the first European fund for cross media entertainment content.


Our team looks for business opportunities in permanently changing operational environment and creates innovative financial products and fund concepts to meet the requests of the market.

Now we are introducing a mezzanine fund based on warrant bonds with partial guarantees. Our cooperation partner in deal flow development, corporate analysis and assessment is the guarantor, Finnvera Plc. The portfolio, which is available at the closing of the fund, consists of Finnish growth companies.

We also provide corporate finance and advisory services to those institutional and corporate clients involved and interested particularly in knowledge based and intellectual property rights (IPRs) related industries.

Besides providing advice CIM Finance & Research Ltd has also completed various studies e.g. on mezzanine finance. The latest assignment commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers focused on proposing viable financial instruments to promote the development of digital media content companies.
