Fund management

Nesec develops, aside from existing, traditional ways of financing, different funds for various target groups and capital goods. That is how we try to fund a high quality, lively and profitable maritime sector for the future.

Our first fund is the Nesec Shipping Debt Fund (NSDF), a financing fund of €250 mln which supplies first mortgage loans for ships. NSDF focuses on removing bottlenecks in financing capacity to give a boost to the short sea sector and the surrounding maritime cluster in a sustainable way.

Nesec was founded in 1946 by the private initiative of a number of Dutch shipbuilders. At the time, the aim was to take up the selling of ships to foreign shipowners. Because of the capital intensity of ships, granting (subordinated) loans became an additional activity and since the seventies of the last century it became our main activity. Even nowadays, Nesec focuses on granting loans for the Dutch maritime cluster. In addition, Nesec develops funds for long term financing of maritime and off shore capital goods.
