12:15 Panel I – Markets and strategies
Beyond the asset – building resilience throughout the cycle

Ships – old and new – have to be operated in an environment of sharp freight rates and pressured asset values perhaps for a couple more years. Opportunities for asset play re- main limited and the focus must be more than ever on creative operating and marketing concepts as well as tight cost management. Leading market players share their thoughts on how their businesses are forced to refocus and readjust to assert themselves in the market place.

Expert panel

  • Ingmar Loges, Head of Shipping Finance, Western Hemisphere, DVB Bank (Frankfurt)
  • Jan Hirschmann, MD, Hanseatic Unity Chartering (Hamburg)
  • Jens Mahnke, CEO, Ernst Russ AG
  • Ignace Van Meenen, CEO, Rickmers Holding (Hamburg)
  • Jens von Husen, MD, Hamburg Bulk Carriers (Hamburg)

14:00 Panel 2 – Ship management & chartering
Skills, scale, strategy – turning ideas into good practice

Call it new normal or call it »crisis«: The continuing slump in shipping demands radical new thinking from technical and commercial managers and operators. Rates and values in most sectors are staying miles away from what would be considered »healthy«. What are the best strategies in ship management today as managers need to respond to calls for maximum efficiency amidst depressed vessel earnings? Let us take stock of some of the promising new approaches taken by world-leading managers and owners who are teaming up in earnings pools. What are the next frontiers in the race for synergies and savings?

16:15 Panel 3 – Shipping and capital markets
Securing funding through the cycle

The crash in most market segments except tankers has made shipping a dark horse for investors again. There is always money on the hunt but finding capital providers with a long-term strategic perspective these days is extremely tough. Opportunities on Wall Street and in Oslo have largely evaporated although investor appetite in these mature markets should rebound at some point. Faced with increased pressure by regulatory authorities shipping banks are forced to get rid of distressed ships or even entire fleet portfolios, at the risk of bloating oversupply in the second-hand market. What are trends and forecasts for investments and deal-making activities as we head into another stormy year?

16:15 Janos F. Koenig, CFO, Eurofin Group (London)
Distressed debt restructuring – what will be left after the big cleanup?
