Shipping finance

The shipping and offshore drilling industries present unique challenges – high capital requirements, frequently volatile markets and essentially mobile assets that require special financing structures.

Based in Stockholm, Gothenburg, London, Singapore and Oslo, our team delivers world-class global finance for ships and off-shore drilling operations. Our shipping clients are based primarily in northern Europe, but we also serve clients in the Far East and North America, and selectively in other parts of the world.

In addition to the full responsibility for shipping finance in their respective markets, our London team specialises in financing solutions for the LNG and cruise industries, and the Oslo team is globally responsible for shipping finance in the offshore sector.

As our client, you'll be dealing with individuals with extensive shipping backgrounds who understand your business challenges and can originate, structure and deliver tailor-made solution to you. They are backed by a credit department and analysts who can assess complex structures and risks.

In addition to loan capital, our shipping finance team also delivers the bank's complete corporate offering, giving you immediate access to a range of other products, such as swap rates, foreign exchange, cash management and corporate finance in the case of mergers and acquisitions.

Our service delivery is backed by analysts who evaluate trends in all segments of the shipping sector and can provide insight into the associated oil and gas industry.
