Maersk Broker is once again demonstrating the company's ambitions for its dry bulk activities. The Maersk-family's privately owned brokerage firm has signed a declaration of intent with Danish broker Lanic to become the new majority shareholder in the company. Lanic CEO Michael Kæfting keeps the remaining shares in the company, inform the two brokers in a statement.
Not long ago, Maersk Broker made a similar move when it bought a stake in another broker, Wonsild, to form a strategic partnership focused on dry bulk activities. Lanic has also in the past 12-18 months been working to expand its business into dry bulk, and the new combined business benefits both parties, according to the statement.
