LISW21 MAY HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE OF SHIPPING
This year’s London International Shipping Week (LISW21) will play centre stage for the discussions that may help shape the future of shipping, according to Hill Dickinson’s Tony Goldsmith.
“Each LISW to date has been an excellent opportunity for the maritime community to come together and share experiences and ideas for the future,” said Mr Goldsmith, Head of Marine & Trade at the international commercial law firm.
“Covid-19 has impacted the maritime community in many ways. LISW21 will have an important dual role in bringing stakeholders together to reflect on the experience of the last 18 months and to discuss how those experiences may shape shipping over the coming months and years.”
Crew welfare and the action needed to safeguard their rights now and in a post-Covid world will be a big talking point at LISW21, Mr Goldsmith said. He added that the event is also an opportunity for Hill Dickinson to showcase its commitment to its people and to the environment.
“At Hill Dickinson, we place huge value on our people being central to the company’s success and on taking steps to reduce our environmental impact,” Mr Goldsmith said. “Environmental, Social and Governance is an exciting framework around which we aim to consolidate our ethos, both to reflect the values of our people and of our clients.”
FREIGHT FINANCIALS; CHARTING THE RECOVERY
Join the Baltic Exchange and Refinitiv for their flagship London International Shipping Week Webinar on 13 September.
Rebound is the watchword for those in international freight and commodity markets. The Covid crises timed with significant volatility in shipping rates leading to volume runs in the FFA market as players looked to curb exposure and capitalise on fluctuation. Alongside a dry cargo rally, we’ve seen a return to pre-pandemic oil pricing, compounding a depression in tanker rates and swelling OPEX. These are undeniably intense times for owners and investors looking to capture post-pandemic demand with a decarbonising fleet.
As we course deeper into Q3 and global vaccine roll-out, we have invited leading financial players from finance, capital markets, shipowning and trading, to share insights on the new shape freight markets are forming and how investors might support this progress. Following a presentation from leading market data group Refinitiv, our panel will address investor appetites for supply-side risk as they try to meet demand forecasts in the race past rebound, towards decarbonisation.REGISTER FOR THE FREE LISW21 PORTAL HERE
