Pelagic Partners Fund

Fund with a Difference

Our founders are experienced, independent shipowners and managers. We understand the shipping markets and have access to deal flows and investment opportunities.

Our control of the whole chain allows us to close market level acquisitions and make them competitive. We understand the complexities of running ships and know how to manage and operate a fleet profitably.

With our founders’ experience in running their own family-owned shipping groups, H.M. Pelagic Partners RAIF V.C.I.C PLC is run in a similar fashion to a traditional shipowning company.

H.M. Pelagic Partners RAIF V.C.I.C PLC is based in Cyprus, one of Europe’s key ship management hubs and a jurisdiction of choice for Fund Managers and Alternative Investment Funds. Enacted in 2018, the Alternative Investment Funds Law provides investor protection and transparency through a regulatory framework which is aligned with the EU directives.

The fund is administered by PwC and audited by Deloitte.


Our Strategy

H.M. Pelagic Partners RAIF V.C.I.C PLC is run by an experienced team within the industry.

The Fund’s Founders, who are anchor investors in the fund, are shipowners who have access to and intimate knowledge of the shipping markets. Investments are primarily driven by the founders’ outreach, experience and network which have been developed over the past 30 years..

Our investment strategy is built on three pillars:

  • Vessel values and the respective downside risk
  • Market sentiment
  • Operational flexibility and cashflow generation within the group

We invest in a diversified set of maritime assets including bulk carriers, oil tankers, chemical & product tankers, ro-ro vessels, general cargo vessels, gas carriers, containerships, and offshore support vessels.

The shipping markets are cyclical, through prudent vessel management, we aim to ensure a steady dividend distribution stream to our investors.

An investment in shipping is an investment in global trade: 90% of global trade moves by sea.
