The MCMP investment strategy targets two areas which comprise its dual revenue stream model. The first revenue stream emphasizes operating cash flows and capital gains generated by owning and operating ocean-going ships.
The second focuses on providing trade finance secured by the cargoes carried on board ships owned or operated on behalf of MCMP. Stable financing solutions are essential components of a successful investment and acquisition strategy in the maritime sector and therefore are central to owning and operating ships. Trade finance provides a unique solution that enhances returns to ship operators while providing generous secured returns to investors providing the financing.
Among the core financing criteria are a focus on conservative assumptions behind revenue models as well as creditworthiness of the counterparties. The Company’s investment principles address the volatility in ship prices, charter rates, interest rates and global demand for commercial vessel tonnage.
