As the number of banks in traditional ship finance shrinks, the gap is being filled by alternative providers. eShipfinance.com is a new venture from a recognised name in ship finance.
There are maybe half a dozen instantly recognisable names in ship finance, and Dagfinn Lunde is one of them. He was head of shipping and offshore at the specialist shipping bank DVB Bank until compulsory retirement. Today he is a co-founder and chairman of SFG Ship Finance Global, which encompasses a new venture in the provision of ship finance: eShipfinance.com
eShipfinance.com is designed to make it easier for both borrowers and investors to engage with each other online. The digital platform allows borrowers to present their proposals using industry standard tools, online.
