Olaf is a founding partner of and has been working for over twenty years in different positions in large international shipping banks. 

Olaf witnessed the changes and the evolution of the ship finance markets, as many traditional European lenders left the market, while new Asian houses were filling the gap with high-cost offers through mandated advisors. This development resulted in less reliable, efficient and transparent procedures.

The digital solutions of aim at alleviating these predicaments, enabling the matching of the requests of borrowers and the expectations of lenders for small tickets, i.e. less than 5mUSD. Innovative products and services deem projects, such as retrofits and installation of greening equipment feasible, and facilitate a more active role of equipment-supplies. In this regard, win-win cases are envisioned for all actors, based on transparency, efficiency, accountability and innovation! is more than a lending platform for ships; it is a global ecosystem of financial efficiency!
