Competent support for legal challenges and successful maritime projects
Shipping funds can be an attractive investment vehicle, but they also carry significant risks. At MTR Legal, we help investors understand and defend their rights.
High earnings potential, but also considerable risk.
Ship funds, also known as ship investments, are usually closed-end funds that raise capital for the construction or purchase of seagoing vessels. Although they were once considered safe and lucrative, the global financial crisis and the collapse of the shipping market have driven many funds into insolvency or restructuring.
A market full of opportunities
Some of the best known ship funds include Atlantic Flottenfonds, Lloyd Fonds LF 16 MS Rosenheim and Hannover Leasing Schiffsfonds. Each of these funds has its own specific characteristics, and it is important to understand them before you invest.
Understand what’s at stake.
When investing in ship funds, there is a risk of a total loss of the capital invested. These risks may be due to low charter rates, market fluctuations or other factors.
We help you understand and enforce your rights.
Our lawyers advise you comprehensively on your rights as an investor in ship funds. We review your investor contract and determine whether and against whom claims exist. We make sure that you have been informed about the risks and that your investment has been invested appropriately.
