The object of Danish Ship Finance (Danmarks Skibskredit A/S) is to provide mortgage backed ship financing in Denmark. In addition, the company provides mortgage backed ship financing in the international market, so long as such activities do not unnecessarily limit the company's Danish operations.
Danish Ship Finance is a stable and reliable source of short-term and long-term loan capital for shipowners in all stages of the shipping cycle and it endeavours to be a competent and trustworthy business partner to its customers and financial counterparties as well as other stakeholders.
Danish Ship Finance aims to obtain satisfactory financial results for its owners and is therefore dedicated to creating value in the form of controlled growth in lending while focusing on high credit quality and appropriate diversification in the loan portfolio.
Danish Ship Finance has evolved in cooperation with the Danish maritime sector, and the vision is that: "Danish Ship Finance is the leading provider of ship financing in Denmark and is to be regarded by the international market players as one of the five most recognised and leading lenders by 2010".
