Goldin Portfolio Management Platform Seals Its First Deal

IHS Fairplay

Maritime industry publication IHS Fairplay featured Goldin Maritime’s inaugural Supramax deal. An affiliate of leading restructuring, oversight and valuation advisory firm Goldin Associates, Goldin Maritime is led by shipping sector expert Randee Day. Goldin Maritime provides investment firms and financial institutions services relating to vessel management oversight, as well as offers acquisition and disposition advisory services.

The article quotes Day describing the Goldin Maritime service offering as follows: “Goldin Maritime provides a small group of executives to handle the oversight of all of the technical and commercial management of the vessels, and to provide strategic advice on sales and trading considerations . . . .” Day continued to explain a key advantage of the oversight component of Goldin Maritime: “We’re an independent third party with a simple per-ship, per-day fee structure and we have no interests in any of the pools or commercial or technical managers we would recommend.”

Goldin Maritime consultant Eftychis Gregos-Mourgianakis described the subject transaction, involving a confidential fund client, by explaining that it constituted “bespoke solution for the investor,” which retains control of the assets, but benefits from “soup to nuts” expert assistance in connection with the investment process.

We wish health and peace of mind all around in this difficult and chaotic time. Our thoughts are with those who are struggling with Covid-19 and its broad and painful effects.

Goldin Associates is fully operational, and you can continue to expect our customary level of client service.  Although the Covid-19 situation is unique, the commercial effects present the kind of challenges that we are accustomed to addressing.  As crisis management and restructuring professionals, whether as interim corporate officers or advisors, our team members are seasoned in helping management teams, creditors, equity holders and other constituents chart a steady course through turbulent waters.  As fiduciaries, we work to preserve value and as financial experts we measure it.  

We hope and pray that the disruptive health, social and economic effects of this crisis are as contained as possible, and we are striving to do what we can—as community members and as professionals—to work towards that goal.
