Maritime Advisory by DNV

Your trusted partner for technology and industry development.

Investment and finance support in shipping

As the bond and loan market continues to develop, the complexity of transactions causes challenges for specialist and mainstream asset managers in determining the sustainability credentials of green, social and sustainable products. Increasingly, investors require a Second Party Opinion (SPO) to make strategic investment decisions. 

Building on our deep technical expertise, market insights and understanding of risk exposure, we translate the impacts from new technology, new regulations and changing operational environment into portfolio, financial and operational strategy. This understanding is essential to ensure that the portfolio risks match the desired profile with respect to carbon exposure, regulatory and technology risk.
