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 how 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
