Schulte invests in capital management

Jun 15 2018

The Schulte Group has launched Hanseatic Capital Management (HCM) and also acted as the anchor investor.

The investment focus is maritime real assets, specifically merchant vessels.


HCM’s management comprises experts from various industries and backgrounds, who combine a wealth of experience in both the shipping and investment sectors, the company claimed.


By joining forces, HCM’s specialists cover all aspects ranging from deal sourcing to acquisition, shipmanagement and operations to vessel disposal. This ensures that all phases relating to the execution of the investment strategy are covered professionally.


HCM will concentrate on a commercially balanced employment strategy, which will include both shorter and period charters, depending on the vessel segments, the company explained.


The first fund to be launched, Hanseatic Fund VCIC Plc, aims to initially raise $120 mill. Its investment goal is on Handysize and Supramax bulk carriers and feeder-sized container vessels aged between four and 15 years. However, other types of tonnage or different sizes will be considered as well.
