Reports & Models

Our coverage and expertise extends across all shipping and offshore sectors, providing explicit, independent short- to long-term forecasts underpinned by macroeconomic fundamentals. Our proprietary econometric models are the foundation for all of our published analysis.
MSI's regular models and market reports are the heart of our services, bringing together an exceptional range and depth of market knowledge. They present the most up-to-date and thought provoking analysis across the full spectrum of the shipping industry, incorporating consistent, independent forecasts and topical alternative scenarios that assess exposure to market risk. Whether from a compliance, monitoring or investment perspective, MSI can provide the right combination of data and interpretation.

Our Model-Based Approach

MSI's integrated and consistent approach to problem-solving incorporates economic, financial and technical factors into quantitative and transparent menu-driven models. Through these models, clients are able to modify MSI's Base Case forecast assumptions and test alternative scenarios.

While modelling techniques cannot replace business acumen, they introduce a rigorous analytical approach to decision-making and facilitate the analysis of alternative scenarios and risks.
