Oslo shipping investors are primed to cash in on tight markets almost across the board, after a round of encouraging takes from the industry and finance analysts of Norwegian finance and shipping broking house Astrup Fearnley.

Broker Fearnleys and sister companies including Fearnley Securities, Fearnley Offshore and Fearnley Offshore Supply drew a packed house for the group’s recent shipping and energy conference.

Fearnley Securities chief executive Peter Wessel believes the sector-specific takes from his research colleagues will have an influence felt beyond Norway.
