2021 New York Ship Finance Forum
Nov. 18th, 2021
ABOUT THE EVENT
Getting the Band Back Together
Ship finance is more productive, and more fun, when we can come together as a community.
Whether it is dreaming up a new deal, expanding your network of funding sources or just brainstorming with new and old relationships, magic happens when motivated people with shared interests get together.
As Marine Money continues its safe return to in-person events, together with partner DNB we are excited to announce that Marine Money's 22nd annual November Ship Finance Forum will be held in-person on November 18th.
The event will be held at Convene, a state-of-the art venue in Midtown Manhattan that is modern, spacious, and accessible by escalator. New York and venue regulations require proof of full vaccination to enter the premises.
To facilitate more time for business development and catching up with old friends, we have adapted our traditional format to allow for: (1) more time for networking time and (2) greater physical space.
Here is a list of our preliminary topics:

Capital Markets - Opportunities and Alternatives in a World Awash in Liquidity
With strong shipping markets, rising inflation and abundant liquidity, the environment for capital markets activity couldn't be better. But if things are so good, where are the IPOs and high valuations?
Container Ships are Locked into Profitable Charters...How Much is EBITDA Worth?
As the number of available vessels decreases and more ships are placed on long term charter, a new question arises; how should vessels and EBITDA be valued - and how should cashflow be allocated? The answer is critical for lenders, investors, owners, and charterers.
The Great Energy Squeeze...What a Cold Winter Might Mean for LNG Tankers
With gas in short supply, LNG ships are the lynch pin for delivering critical energy supplies. In this session, owners talk about the tactics and strategy of working in an ultra-tight market - and may be getting a lot tighter.
Offshore Wind and Marine Infrastructure...Capex Needed for Energy Transition
Everyone agrees that the maritime industry must transition to lower emissions energy, but executing that transition will require trillions in capital and the precision expertise of specialized companies, assets, and technology both at sea and ashore. In this session, a group of key players describe what they are doing.
