Galbraiths Financial Ltd provides tailor made specialist financing services to ship owners, operators and financial institutions since 2015. It benefits from being part of Galbraith’s and complements its worldwide presence in traditional shipbroking.

Our goal is to help new and well established ship owners and operators to raise debt and equity and find structures and technical solutions in order to meet their strategic requirements. We are focusing in both the shipping and the offshore sectors (any age, size, type of vessel etc.) and we act as independent financial providers.

Galbraiths Financial Ltd also provides advice to investors seeking yield and capital appreciation in maritime related projects. We structure attractive opportunities providing financial leverage flexibility to ship owners and financial institutions and meeting investors’ expectations.

We have relationships with traditional banks helping our clients to obtain the best possible terms and at the same time we have developed relationships with alternative financing providers as well as leasing companies around the world to ensure global coverage. Given the current ship financing conditions and its limitations we can provide the optimal solution to our clients.

We aim to assist existing Galbraiths broking clients (through our brokers) but also look to expand our network and approach new clients.

Galbraiths Financial has experience in, and deep relationships with:

  • Traditional ship finance banks
  • Alternative financing and mezzanine providers
  • Equity providers
  • Sale and lease back operators / Financial leasing companies
  • Global ship managers
  • ECA financing
  • Sharia compliant facilities / Islamic finance
  • Debt restructurings including loan bank buy back solutions
  • Project Finance

Capital market solutions and services will be provided in cooperation with international investment bank ABG Sundal Collier.

The team is led by Dipak Karki, an ex-banker with 20 years of global banking and shipping finance experience.
