Pareto Securities’ Project Finance division has extensive experience and expertise in structuring, syndication and management of investment projects in the shipping and offshore. Through our subsidiary Pareto Business Management we currently manage a portfolio of more than 70 vessels, although this number is constantly changing due to our unparalleled flow of new projects as well as sales of existing assets. Our primary focus is well-structured projects with long charter parties, supplemented by asset play and opportunistic projects depending on the circumstances.
All our projects are tailored to meet the requirements of the charterers and other counterparties we work with while satisfying our investors’ desire for consistently attractive rates of returns and regular dividend payments. The anticipated and actual project returns are always considered in light of the underlying project risk in order to create an optimal risk-reward balance. This is exemplified by our hands-on project follow-up and management.
Since 2002, our overall portfolio has generated an estimated internal rate of return (IRR) of approximately 18%.
Thanks to our many years of experience we have built up a substantial network of ship owners, yards, charterers, ship brokers and other partners with whom we work to constantly source new projects. We are also a market leader in terms of capital raising and the placement of new projects as well as in terms of liquidity provision for the second-hand trading of shares in our projects.
