Due to the increasing investments required for energy-efficient, second-hand ships or for similar newbuilds, finance is becoming more complex. Instead of a single owner, above a certain size category it is usually only investor syndicates that are able to realise larger ship projects. Thanks to deep knowledge of the market the Group has positioned itself as a preferred partner and consultant for investors, shipowners and ocean-freight operators.
In order to satisfy the many different interests of stakeholders, financers are faced with totally new challenges. Rickmers has given itself a modern corporate governance structure and ensures transparency through financial reporting to international standards (IFRS), which further eases access to international capital markets.
