European Maritime Finance (EMF) was founded in 2014 as a trading division of SIPA Group SA in Switzerland.
The objective was to create a bridge between ship owners seeking to raise capital and professional investors who wanted to take advantage of the then cyclical lows in the tanker markets.
Working closely with well established shipowners & fleet operators, investors have been able to participate directly in various secondhand aquisition projects in both tankers and drybulkers.
After several successful years, in 2018, the division was restructured and effectively split in two; European Maritime Finance A/S was established in Denmark and the original trading division was rebranded SIPA Maritime.
The deciding factor for establishing the Copenhagen HQ was the growing client base in Scandinavia – and our ambition is to accelerate the growth. Through a local presence, we are better able to service clients throughout the Nordic region.
EMF is a corporate finance company, focused on introducing qualified investors to direct investments in commercial vessels.
We provide a generalized approach, presenting vessel types at a conceptual level, which allows potential investors to evaluate the market, before there is an actual investment project.
This approach allows us to build a book of potential investors in specific classes, such that when the market provides an actual opportunity, all parties are ready to act.
Depending on the client’s requirements and the actual project, EMF can assist in providing in-depth due diligence, creating corporate structures, administrating projects and performing the day to day administration.
