Introduction to service area:

Investment propositions require thorough research and expert advice in order to ensure their viability. Without this information, investment opportunities carry higher than normal risk. Across the freight, maritime, and commodity industries, where investments are typically large, this risk is exaggerated, ensuring the need for professional consultancy and benchmark analysis prior to investment assurance. We are internationally renowned for our Consultancy service, delivering the in-depth insights crucial for risk management and industry insights.

Case background

Our client, a financial institution, was a potential major investor in a network of physical bunker facilities. The client was not familiar with either the potential counterparty or the region, but had existing experience in the bunkering field. Infospectrum has particular strengths and expertise in the bunkering sector and in many regions worldwide. We had been initially recommended to our client by another company active in the bunker sector elsewhere, who admired our local expertise and extensive bunkering contacts in the subject region.

How did InfoSpectrum proceed?

We tailored a consultancy package to fit the client’s precise needs, first providing a regional analysis of the sector before investigating key companies comparable with the subject group. We undertook a site visit and had face-to-face meetings with senior management at the subject group, before meeting with key potential customers of the proposed bunker network.

What were the impacts?

The findings of our report assisted the client with their investment (which went ahead with some alterations) and enabled them to make an informed, considered decision.
