Maritime Asset Partners (MAP) is a Luxemburg-domiciled non-bank, specialised finance platform, established in 2017 in response to opportunities arising from the diminished supply of credit to owners and operators in the global maritime sector. Pursuing a fundamental credit strategy, MAP is focused on secured lending, leasing and structured equity solutions for commodity and industrial shipping as well as the offshore oil and gas industries.
The company’s long-term investment view is backed by major financial and industry investors who have laid the foundation for a strong platform. With the diverse stakeholder network and affiliated companies, MAP has access to extensive relationships and origination capabilities in London, New York, Oslo and Singapore.
Our target client group is broad and includes leading maritime corporations looking for a tier of complementary capital, as well as mid-cap owners and operators who may not be target clients for the mainstream commercial banks.
Our investment advisory team is based in London and supported by our business services team in Luxemburg.

We offer flexible and commercially driven capital with best in class execution; whether in bi-lateral transactions or when leveraging the management team’s extensive network of bank and other debt capital partners. MAP is not constrained by rigid lending policies and as such, we aim to be constructive in response to the unique demands of each project. We have a fundamental credit strategy, focused on loan-to-value, liquidity, counterparty and market risk.
MAP is open for business and energetically building its portfolio across a range of risk profiles. In all cases, an evaluation of the project sponsor’s support is widely defined but nevertheless essential to establish an alignment of interests and a mutually beneficial, long term, business relationship.
