Credit research service

21 Feb 2017

Drewry Financial Research Services Ltd., the investment research arm of UK-headquartered global shipping consultancy Drewry, has announced the launch of a new credit research service for the global maritime sector.

Through this extension to its established maritime equity
research offering Drewry is now able to provide a full investment research
service which includes in-depth analysis of the credit instruments that
underpin corporate capital structure and provide an investment proposition in
asset allocation for institutional investors. Debt capital is a key source of
funding for the maritime sector and as regulatory burdens restrict capital
availability more companies are expected to tap the debt capital markets in
coming years.

Commenting on the launch, Rahul Kapoor, Head - Drewry
Financial Research Services Ltd said: “We believe there is a growing need for
objective, independent credit research on the highly complex bond structures
within the maritime sector. The new offering provides an impartial view of both
global maritime bonds and listed credit instruments and will help market
participants analyse their investments as well as monitor the creditworthiness
of counterparties. We aim to provide our clients with comprehensive solutions
that combine industry-leading insight with independent equity, credit and
bespoke maritime research of the highest quality.”

Launching with a rigorous analysis of the listed bonds of
the three major container shipping companies, A.P. Moller Maersk, CMA CGM and
Hapag Lloyd AG the service offering will expand to cover other maritime sectors
including port operators, dry bulk, tanker and gas shipping.
