SGM’s history can be traced back to the 1970s when the group started operating bulk carriers on transatlantic grain trades. Its focus evolved in the early 1980s to include the operation and co-ownership of various types of vessels, mostly bulk carriers and product tankers. Since then, SGM’s expertise has extended to asset management and investment services, and the company is active in the all-round management of several shipping investment projects. SGM has been involved in operations ranging from product tankers, chemical carriers, bulk carriers, offshore support and containerships. Besides, SGM provides consultancy services to banks, financiers, flag states and major ship-owning groups.
