UPT is also active in the time-charter markets, where it charters in vessels on its own account and selectively charters out tonnage to hedge its physical market exposure. This activity serves the purpose of offering depth and commercial flexibility to our pool activities, for the benefit of customers and members alike.
Through time-charter transactions, UPT can offer investors the chance to gain exposure to the shipping markets. We provide participants with the opportunity to invest in either a fixed portion or all of the underlying time-charters.
UPT, thanks to its superior market insight and network , is able to identify opportunities in the Time Charter space at favourable terms and has a proven track record of successful dealings. Information, timing and efficiency of such executions are key to their success.
