Star Tankers is looking for new investors to make sure that the present fleet of 29 ships can grow. The investors will be equity funds, Star Tankers Managing Director, Jesper Bo Hansen, tells ShippingWatch.
“At the moment, we are spending a lot of energy on creating interest among the private equity investment companies. We have a very comprehensive dialogue with several companies which have been looking into shipping investments for some time. We try to create a model in which they are able to invest directly in the company so they will not have to establish their own shipping company or invest directly in shipping companies which is critical for a lot of funds,” Jesper Bo Hansen says.
