Xiradakis comes onboard Dagfinn Lunde’s ship finance platform

A well known name in Greek ship finance has come onboard Dagfinn Lunde’s, a platform launched last year at Posidonia in Athens.

XRTC Business Consultants, led by George Xiradakis, has signed up to cooperate with, which Lunde founded with Marina Tzoutzouraki and Tarun Gulati.

The platform was created to cover the funding gap faced by small and medium-sized shipowners in raising capital, while offering investment opportunities to prospective investors who wish to diversify their investment portfolio.

Lunde commented yesterday, “We at are happy that we managed to get an agreement with XRTC Business Consultants, an experienced company both with shipowners and investors/banks and with such a good standing in the Greek shipping community.”
