An evening of ship financing

On May 23rd, YoungShip Bergen were invited to the offices of DNB in Solheimsviken for an interesting outlook of ship financing.

Pia Christine Helland and Tor Christian Mælen guided almost 50 YoungShippers through the fast paced environment of ship financing, with an added focus on sustainability, regulations and factors affecting a company's eligibility for loans. 

After the presentation, DNB served a tasteful tapas menu and some refreshments from the bar, while we were given the opportunity to pick the brains of the DNB team or simply catch up with friends from the industry. We even learned that Pia Christine was a board member in YoungShip herself, a few years back. Talk about giving back to Youngship!

The volatility of the industry in both profit margins as well as operational risk truly makes ship financing a necessary cog in the maritime industry. It allows ship owners to take risks and reach new heights, as well as allow new organizations to enter the market.

Thank you again to the DNB team and all of our members who managed to make the trip.


We look forward to seeing you again soon at the Youngship summer party – June 21st.
