The one-day 13th Annual Shipping and Marine Services Forum held in London earlier this month by New York-based investment advisory firm Capital Link discussed a number of relevant topics with the aim of providing investors with a comprehensive review and current outlook of the various shipping markets.

In a press release following the event, Capital Link said the discussed topics were of critical interest to industry participants, financiers, and investors.

The topics included digital solutions in shipping operations, alternative capital sources for shipping, and decarbonisation, with this main topic alone being covered by three separate presentations and discussions.

Under decarbonisation, the topics highlighted included the need for regulatory alignment, further research and development, and cooperation across different sectors to reduce costs and make the necessary technology more accessible to small- and medium-sized customers.

The digital forum was hosted in partnership with Astrup Fearnleys and in cooperation with the London Stock Exchange. The event was held in conjunction with the London International Shipping Week 2021.
