Advisory and Due Diligence Services

We understand that the objective of an investment is a (sustainable) risk adjusted return.

The underlying security to any investment is ultimately the asset(s). How well do the investors know this asset and the condition it is in? How effective are the management and maintenance systems of the manager/operator? How is the valued?

A firm understanding of the quality of the underlying asset is required in order to mitigate the risks of poor quality build and/or maintenance.

At LOC we understand how complex the building and maintenance procedure is. With a team of over 350 personnel located in over 30 offices worldwide, we are uniquely placed to support investors in understanding the asset condition and risk.

Market rates and values of assets are linked to geopolitics and the ultimate demand/supply balance. The factors though that are manageable are the condition of the asset and its place within the value ranges at any time.

LOC can provide support and the information critical to how both maintenance and management systems are being applied and if they are both effective and efficient. We can support owners and investors in all stages of investment and provide our technical and commercial advice during the entry, maintenance of current exposure, or exit strategies in order to maximise the potential returns.

We offer Ship Inspection Services, Desk Top technical reviews and Audits amongst many other services. We also work closely with internationally recognised brokers in order to provide a factual valuation of your asset. Please contact us for a tailored product to suit your requirements.
