Since its inception in 1984, the SSY research department has cut through the market noise and provided timely expert opinion and advice to our clients.

From humble beginnings as a one-man department set up by Dr. Phil Rogers in June 1984, SSY’s research department has followed the same successful strategy:

  • Provide best-in-class market analysis based on high-quality data.
  • Leverage our strength in commodity markets and network of close charterers.
  • Integrate the flow of information from our broker desks into our market interpretation.

A research department is only as good at its people and the wealth of experience accumulated within the team. We pride ourselves in the fact that many of our team members have spent decades with us.
