MD Clarksons Platou Structured Asset Finance

We focus on providing informed, impartial advice and innovative, bespoke financing solutions for our target clients.  We are fully independent from all financial providers and always act in the best interests of our clients.

Our in-depth knowledge of the key participants in the shipping finance market, including traditional shipping banks, other financial institutions, leasing companies and alternative finance providers (as well as investment houses working through Clarksons Platou Securities) allows us to advise on and deliver optimal financing strategies across our global network of clients.

By drawing on the market-leading expertise within our broking, offshore, research and investment banking teams, we are able to identify and mitigate risk factors in order to validate any financing proposal. 

We work exclusively to match our clients' objectives with our detailed knowledge of global financing appetite and to achieve best value by using our structuring and transaction execution expertise.
