Marine Credit Analysis


Shipping markets are under pressure; environmental regulations are coming; low demand and an oversupply of vessels is creating weak freight rates, causing several high-profile failures and a much larger number of smaller casualties.

Shipping industry professionals can arm themselves against these risks by closely vetting their potential counterparties and evaluating individual business opportunities.

How? From basic Know Your Customer (KYC) data to enhanced credit reports. In the low-disclosure shipping environment, carrying out due diligence not only helps mitigate the risks inherent in the market, but also gives participants an informational edge over competitors who may exercise less care. It must therefore be seen as an essential component of all transactions.

Our reports help you to make informed business decisions in the high-cost, high-risk maritime world. We bring transparency to a low disclosure environment, delivering up-to-the-minute information, unbiased analysis, credit references and recommendations to support your counterparty due diligence and business decisions.
