Leading shipping analyst Peder Nicolai Jarlsby is taking the well-worn path from equity research into shipping company management.

The Fearnley Securities man told TradeWinds that he will soon be leaving the Norwegian investment bank to become chief executive at Glastad family shipping company Mosvolds Rederi in Oslo.

“The official role will be CEO/investment director, but the primary task will be managing equity/credit investments on the shipping side,” Jarlsby said.
