Greek shipping remains important to the maritime economy, constituting approximately 20 percent of the world’s shipping fleet. In spite of the volatile markets and economic downturn, Greek shipping professionals have consistently adapted to changing conditions, seeking out growth and opportunity rather than yielding to their circumstances.

Capital Link will host the 6th Annual Greek Shipping Forum in Athens, Greece. This event will not only cover the latest developments and trends in international trade, dry bulk commodities, and the energy markets—framed against the broader backdrop of the global economy—but also review the various funding alternatives for raising capital among listed and private shipping companies. Experts will additionally address effective investment strategies and risk management in today’s shipping industry.


Capital Link invites institutional investors, analysts, bankers, financial advisors, financial media, and other qualified investors who are interested in enhancing their knowledge of shipping across all sectors. With an average of roughly 1000 participants each year, attendees can expect an informative networking forum connecting them to the shipping industry’s key players, including influential members in the financial community, such as commercial and investment banks.
