Freight House of the Year: Deutsche Bank

Energy Risk Awards 2013 - logo

Deutsche Bank wins this year’s Freight House of the Year award for supporting the freight derivatives market through a difficult 18 months of very low liquidity. In the forward freight agreement (FFA) market, the bank completed well over 115,000 lots for clients during 2012 – more than any other house – giving it an estimated market share of nearly 15%. This is up approximately 40,000 lots on 2011.

Deutsche Bank’s success in freight derivatives owes much to its presence in the shipping loan mark
