Just nine months after stepping up as Clarksons Securities’ new head of research for US shipping stocks, Turner Holm is leaving the post.

But he is not moving far: the 12-year Clarksons veteran is moving over to the company’s team of investment bankers to work on offshore wind projects.

Holm, 37, shared the news with TradeWinds on Friday, saying his colleague Frode Morkedal — an experienced analyst who had focused on Oslo-listed securities — will now add US coverage to his brief with help from a beefed-up staff of associates.
