This Thursday marks the debut of the Annual Marine Money Geneva Forum. Scheduled for the 27th of June, the event will be held at the President Wilson Hotel in Geneva.
The 2013 Marine Money Geneva Forum gathers leading international ship finance professionals from across the globe. Eagle Bulk Shipping Chairman and CEO Sophocles N. Zoullas will appear on a panel alongside Mr. Fabrice Piard of Louis Dreyfus Commodities, Mr. George Wells of Cargill, Mr. Minas Sorotos of Miralco Resources AG and Mr. John Su of Erasmus Shipinvest B.V.
Under the moderation of Mr. George Cambanis, the experts will discuss the trading houses and shipping, and how traders perceive the freight market in various sectors going forward. How, also, do they intend to participate in the market going forward- ownership, long-term charters, spot charters or spot voyages, COAs? Sophocles Zoullas will also discuss whether acquiring shipping assets now makes sense for trading houses to hedge shipping costs and support trading desks in the near future.
Other topics at the event will include commodity and trade finance, alternate sources of funding, finance to the shipping industry, and many others.
