The next Baltic Exchange/Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers lecture in London (13 November at the Baltic Exchange) will focus on ship finance and will be delivered by Tony Foster, CIO of Marine Capital. The lunchtime lecture will focus on how asset owners and others with exposure to freight rates raise capital today; how does it affect an owner’s chartering decisions as well as related streams; why are we seeing an increasing number of charterer- owner JVs and what the motivations are for these sort of tie ups?
The popular lecture series is aimed at building wider industry knowledge amongst younger chartering and operations staff.
