About

NorthCape operates world wide with headquarters in Oslo. We are currently 21 employees with extensive investment and commercial banking experience.
NorthCape was established in January 2012 as a partnership between the employees and shipping professionals. We provide consulting services in respect of financing, sale, purchase, and chartering of shipping, cruise, offshore and aviation assets. Since inception we have structured and closed transactions in excess of USD 18 billion.

Our clients include listed and private companies. NorthCape enjoys an excellent network of relations with leasing companies, banks as well as private and institutional investors. We have developed a strong footprint among Chinese financial institutions, having arranged financing of more than 180 assets since 2012.
Our performance shall be matched against the standards of industry peers in terms of quality, diligence and execution. NorthCape takes a zero-tolerance approach towards bribery and corruption. We strive for innovation and diligence in our interface with our clients, financing sources and other stakeholders. Our business approach shall be humble, honest and focused.

During 2018, the effort to penetrate aviation finance business brought success with the structuring of finance leases for four narrow-body commercial aircrafts. This initiative has since continued to develop with several new transactions.

Most notably, during 2019 NorthCape assisted Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA and CCB Financial Leasing to set up a joint venture company with a purpose of initially acquiring 27 A320 aircraft and with the potential to increase this portfolio of aircraft further. This transaction is a testimony of our excellent relationship with financial institutions in the Chinese market.

We have developed a strong international finance intermediary, having arranged and closed more than 189 assets (aircrafts and ships) since 2012 in 70 separate transactions.
