One of shipping’s best known analysts is back with his own firm. Mike Webber, who resigned from Wells Fargo Securities in July, has launched Webber Research & Advisory, an independent investment research firm focused on global export infrastructure.
Webber became well known this decade by ranking US-listed shipping firms by their corporate governance, something shipping has been slow to adopt.
Webber is joined in the new advisory by Greg Wasikowski, a colleague from Wells Fargo, and Peiwu Tsung, who used to be with Deutsche Bank.
Webber Research launches in a year where many investment banks have dropped shipping coverage following a long period of anaemic growth in the sector.
