Danish Ship Finance – Danmarks Skibskredit A/S – is a Danish financial institution that issues loans to Danish and foreign shipowners secured against their vessels. The company's vision is to be the most recognised and stable provider of financing for reputable shipowners. The loan portfolio has broad exposure to numerous shipping segments and focuses on shipowners in Denmark and abroad with high credit ratings.
