The three major Dutch banks offer maritime financial services for the shipping and offshore sector. Together with their smaller counterparts, they offer both lending services for assets and related financial services. The banks have sector specific specialist teams with a global focus. Next to offices in Rotterdam, most banks have offices in major maritime hubs like Greece, Norway, London and Singapore. Rotterdam based financial institutions build upon a great heritage in the maritime sector and are well aware of the specific needs of the worldwide maritime sector. The Rotterdam based banks have long standing relationships with other shipping banks worldwide. In the market for syndicated loans this is of upmost importance.
Unique Dutch maritime financial services
The Dutch banks differ from competitors as, they are next to deep-sea, also very familiar with specific segments like short-sea and inland shipping. Close ties to specialised maritime lawyers, legal advisors and maritime insurers ensure a thorough risk assessment of financing.
In Rotterdam one can find all these maritime services. Within RMSC many of these companies share experiences and discuss trends that affect this dynamic sector.
