- HANSA Forum: Platou Says Shipping Poised for Best Period in Years
[28 NOV 2019] Capital markets have not been overly enthusiastic about shipping in recent years, this past year being no exception, but, according to more than a few finance professionals, this is prime time for a turnaround in fortunes with smart money poised to see solid returns. This is also the opinion of Erik Helberg, CEO of Clarksons Platou Securities, who held a convincing presentation in Hamburg at the 23rd annual HANSA Forum for Shipping Finance. “Conditions are ripe for a turnaround,” Helberg said, indicating multiple reasons for investors to reassess a market that has weathered one of its toughest periods in recent memory. Equity has done surprisingly well in 2019, said Helberg, with the possible exception of LNG carriers, which saw their general performance fall by some 29% year-on-year. But this was the exception that proves the rule, so to speak, with equity returns in the majority of other shipping sectors having shown respectable-to-incredible returns in the year-to-date (indeed, shipping as a total entity, rose by 13% over the year). Container equity grew by a modest 5% this year, Helberg showed in a slide, followed by dry bulk with 11% growth and ship leasing companies with 30%. The highest end growth was in tankers, however, with handsome gains of 42%, 73% and 99% in 2019 in the equity areas of product tankers, crude tankers and mix tankers.
