OUR STORY

Your investment is the driving force that shapes our world

Thank you for visiting our website.
Japan is an archipelago made up of over 6,800 islands, and as such, maritime vessels form a lifeline for its commerce & trade. It also unequivocally forms the core of logistics infrastructure in the globalised world.
Ship building is capital intensive and so has become inextricably connected to finance. The shipping industry is supported by many financial institutions and investors.
To people outside the shipping industry, the interconnectedness of shipping supply chains and the integral role it plays in our lives may not be so discernible, but it has firmly established itself as a truly global asset in a globalised world.

AMC was forged from our cumulative experience and shipping finance expertise to service the multitude of stakeholders in the shipping value chain through various financing solutions. However, we do so with the intention of attracting newcomers to the industry and broadening their horizons. This is why we started our business.

We welcome you to join us on our maritime adventure, in contributing to the shipping industry, connecting ships and financing, and in offering investment opportunities to financial institutions and investors.
