Industry Note No. 4 - Invest in Aframaxes? Yes, Please! pdf

Identifying emerging trends is the cornerstone of managing risks accordingly and maximizing returns on investment. For the tanker markets, our analysis indicates that Aframaxes may be on the verge of reversing the downward trend in demand experienced over the last four years ending in 2015. From a supply perspective, the aging profile of the Aframax fleet, coupled with a relatively modest orderbook, are likely to support a relative out performance of earnings over the medium term, making these tankers an attractive investment at current levels.
