Special project

Shipping finance market developments

The shipping finance market is facing structural changes with the new Basel IV banking regulation and increased appetite of financiers for green projects. Traditional shipping banks adapt their strategies to this changing environment, resulting in a two-tiered market. New entrants such as private debt providers have appeared to meet the funding needs of projects no longer able to access traditional shipping banks.

By closely monitoring this market we offer a unique and independent perspective which benefits our clients.

The multiplication of shipping finance players triggers a need for intermediation which comes as an additional service offered by BRS.
