MSI Unveils Digital Platform
UK-based shipping consultant Maritime Strategies International (MSI) has unveiled MSI HORIZON, a new digital platform which enables clients to access the consultancy’s proprietary macro and shipping market models and asset valuations data via a single interface.
According to a release, the creation of an integrated data platform means MSI clients can quickly and easily run market simulations and see the results across multiple shipping sectors.
This includes creating their own forward outlook on valuations and earnings scenarios by adjusting inputs such as GDP growth and vessel supply and demand. This will indicate the impact on newbuilding and second-hand values, as well as on earnings and operating costs, as far forward as 2035.
“The shipping markets have rarely faced such a combination of contradictory forces, from trade wars and political risk to regulatory-driven cost impacts and long term sustainability challenges,” says MSI Managing Director Adam Kent.
“Having the full suite of modelling and valuation tools in one place enables our subscribers to model global market and sector impacts faster and more conveniently,” he added.
The integration of MSI’s proprietary valuation tool Forward Marine eValuator (FMV) enables clients to stress test forecast assumptions for their fleets against the MSI Base Case and custom scenarios using a new product called Alternative Marine eValuator (AMV), it said.
