MARE FORUM SHIPFINANCE
2008

SHIPOWNERS VERSUS CAPITAL PROVIDERS
Who is afraid of the future?

A lively debate between Shipowners and Capital Providers
 

Thursday 30 October 2008
The Grand Hotel

AMSTERDAM - THE NETHERLANDS



Banking is not boring any more. Come and find out how the credit crunch is affecting shipping bankers. Are we seeing the start of a new order? The end of laissez-fair capitalism? The end of easy credit? Will we see government's curbing credit? Have bankers pulled the roof down on everyone, and what can we all do to protect our businesses and our funds?

Even big name shipping banks are now asking good owners with good projects to wait a long time for funds. What should owners do now to make sure they are first in the queue for any money banks still have to lend?

 

Shipping is a strong industry which thrives on volatility. But you can have too much of anything, and there is now a big gap in perception about the future. Shipowners think the good times can roll on, ship financiers think the bad times are already back, and hurting. Who is right, and who should be afraid of the future?

Come to Amsterdam and join leading shipowners and financiers in a very personal rolling discussion of where shipping is going, what challenges and opportunities it must face up to and where the smart money is going next. Debate with leading owners and regulators how quality will be affected when the market turns down. Learn h
ow to mobilise a Billion USD in the current climate. Dispute who has the real hard information on current trends and how it should be valued. Argue about the real cost of the environment and who will pay it.

Now in its eighth year, this Mare Forum Ship Finance conference attracts a very high level audience who appreciate the dynamic format and honest debate which has become its hallmark.

Don’t be afraid. Join them, meet the top bankers and owners, and discuss money, ships and the factors that affect them both with market makers and industry shapers.

 

 

We look forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam,
