Transport Capital has hired shipping finance veteran Vijay Kamath as its new shipping head for South East Asia, South Asia and the Middle East.

Kamath’s appointment at the Singapore-based investment management and financial advisory firm reunites him with Philip Clausius, who he worked closely with at First Ship Lease for five years.
