The Vasco Solution
Vasco was born of two worlds – Risk Management and Commerical Fleet Management. Vasco Systems integrates business processes, digitalisation and Artificial Intelligence in a modern User Interface with flexibility. Vasco not only takes care of the day-to-day business activities in managing a fleet of vessels, chartering in and out but it also allows the users to easily view their Risk Positions and M2M from a trading perspective. Incorporating Risk Management into shipping allows the Ship Owners to monitor the risk of bunkers and the ability to calculate CO2 Emissions to accurately become Carbon Neutral from a forward perspective. This eliminates risk, locks in returns and allows the business to easily strategize in a controlled compliant manner.
Equity Ocean is focused on helping our clients to scale their businesses. We have more than 30 years’ experience in finance and fundraising, including senior leadership roles in fast growth environments across Asia, India, Africa and Europe.
