Sectorial expertise: focus on Shipping, Aviation and Real Estate Finance 

Shipping & Offshore Finance

We offer dedicated expertise and tailored solutions to leading ship owners around the world looking to fund the build, purchase and development of vessels and offshore projects, in both the commercial shipping sector and offshore oil and gas sector. We focus on those clients and sectors where we believe we can add most value – namely, financing for Industrial and LNG Shipping and Offshore sector projects. This includes both bank and capital market financing as well as advisory services for project and corporate financing. 

Our leadership in structured finance together with a global network of investor, export credit agency and banking relationships means we can deliver complex and/or high-value shipping transactions on competitive terms, even in the toughest market conditions.

Societe Generale has been the first financial institution to join the SEA/LNG coalition, a multi-sector industry coalition aiming to accelerate the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel. Under the Poseidon Principles, signed by Societe Generale to promote shipping industry decarbonisation, we finance and refinance vessels that comply with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) 2050 emissions targets.

Aviation Finance 

You are airline or lessor: we provide you financing solutions for large commercial aircraft acquisitions, especially export credit financing, leases and secured debt, with or without recourse, as well as capital market solutions in cooperation with our asset backed-Products expert teams.

We offer a range of solutions to real estate investors for financing the acquisition or refinancing of office properties, retail assets or shopping centers, logistics assets, hotels and, in certain circumstances, multi-family assets, student accommodation and care homes, located in the main European countries, the United States, Japan and Australia.
