One Stop Shop for Maritime Investments
We support our clients throughout the entire lifecycle of their investments. In this matter, we act not only as a management advidor for investors in controlling their investments and benchmarking the involved service providers, but also as a partner for shipping companies that want to realize their further growth with external investors and capital from outside the industry. Due to our modu-lar approach, management services can be provided on a selective basis for competent clarifica-tion of individual issues as well as on a fully comprehensive scope. Due to the broad experience of the Silverton Group, we are also active in an advisory capacity in ship financing for selected partners.
Since May 2020, we are managing a fleet of bulk carrier as well as container feeder vessels in the capacity of the master servicer and support the German investor within the ongoing communica-tion with the operational ship manager to optimize the economic results. In this context, we monitor the OPEX and CAPEX budgets and provide decision relevant support for technical issues, in par-ticular for the execution of major repairs as well as regarding upcoming conversions and other technical upgrades of the vessels. Prior to the conclusion of charter contracts, we discuss the cur-rent market situation with the investor and evaluate the proposals of the operational ship manager for the continued operation of the vessels. Together with a law firm, we ensure transparent con-tracts in which the remuneration structures of all service providers are finalized in advance.
Benchmarking: The fleet is technically and commercially managed by different operational ship managers. We constantly arrange the performance and cost comparison between the managers and thus actively contribute to cost optimization and transparency.
Exit: An essential part of a successful ship investment is the successful sale of the vessel. We monitor and analyze permanently the relevant market segments and anticipate its potential future development, thus supporting the owner in the decision making process regarding the best exit timing. As we are independent and have no interest in a long holding period of the investment, we will also pro-actively initiate the sale if we consider this to be right time from our professional con-viction. Our main focus is the economic success of the investor.
