A forum entitled “New York Maritime Matters: Capital Markets: Today and Tomorrow” will be held on September 20th at the Lincoln Center Campus of Fordham University School of Law. Sponsored by New York Maritime (NYMAR) and the Fordham University School of Law, the seminar will be held from 4-6pm, followed by a wine reception.
This forum will explore the recent volatility in the capital markets and the impact on shipping, as well as examine capital requirements for port infrastructure.
Led by AMA Capital Partners’ Managing Director Peter Shaerf, a panel of shipping experts including Sophocles Zoullas (CEO, Eagle Bulk
), John Wobensmith (CFO, Genco Shipping & Trading) and Omar Nokta (Analyst, Dahlman Rose) will discuss the recent volatility in the shipping capital markets.
A second panel, moderated by AMA’s Jim Dolphin, will focus on the capital requirements for port infrastructure projects. Julie Nelson (Deputy Administrator for MARAD), Craig Fuehrer (Managing Director, Deutsche Bank) and Steve Edwards (CEO, Ports America invited) will address matching port infrastructure projects with capital opportunities for financing.
