Shipping Finance - specific sector expertise
The strengthening of global economic activity during 2010 brought a measure of stability to the international transport markets. The uptick in demand, along with a plethora of capacity adjustments, has seen vessel charter rates in maritime shipping hold their own. Our Shipping Finance team remained under steam and full ahead, providing consistent support and optimal lending solutions for our clients throughout the year. Our sector approach translates well into a broad and thorough coverage of the distinct shipping sectors. It enables us to collect and amass crucial in-depth knowledge of the assets, clients, value-chains, cargo flows and networks. This expertise is what makes our Shipping Finance team unique. It allows us to understand developments in particular shipping sectors and in the general market quicker than the competition. This specific know-how enables us to operate proactively, solidifying our reputation as a trusted partner in the shipping industry. In 2010, we won accolades for our proven expertise and excellent market position from heavyweight industry journals: five awards from Marine Money, two awards from Jane’s Transport Finance and one accolade from Seatrade Asia.
