Ship Investment Cash Flow Analysis with Excel
Financial modelling of ship investments can quantify the downside risk and the upside potential before deciding to invest. It is also a useful tool to monitor risks and performance during the investment period. A good ﬁnancial model is also an excellent tool for communicating opportunities or potential problems to management, lenders and investors. Working with a good ship finance model makes it possible to identify opportunities or potential problems to early, and plans for appropriate actions to be prepared in advance.
Pacoship is an Excel-based application with a flexible workflow and extensive report capabilities intended for shipowners, shipbrokers, financiers and investors. Students and people with a maritime background moving into commercial positions will also find it useful.
To run Pacoship, you need to run Excel (Office 2010 or later version) on a computer with a Windows operating system. (For more detailed information see the KNOWLEDGE menu). To make use of exporting charts generated by Pacoship directly to Powerpoint and send e-mails without exiting Pacoship, you also need to have Powerpoint and Outlook installed (recommended).
