Vancouver ShipInvest and Management Ltd (VSIM) is a Vancouver ship investment company set up to take advantage of the positive investment climate that exists in Vancouver.
There is an initiative – The Vancouver International Maritime Centre (VIMC) – which is funded by the Provincial and Federal governments, to increase the shipping presence in Vancouver. They have set up certain tax incentives, and also some potential immigration benefits to bring shipowners to Vancouver. We intend to work closely with them to take advantage of the benefits they offer.
At VSIM, ship owning is not only our job, but also our passion – we are dedicated to helping others achieve their dreams of ship owning. We are looking to attract funds from investors to purchase commercial ships, especially dry cargo ships and base our operation in Vancouver, Canada. We invest in what we believe are low-risk traditional ships with appreciation of the asset value and favourable cash profiles.
In addition, VSIM is organizing a monthly Vancouver Shipping luncheon, to facilitate growth in the Vancouver shipping community, build up our local shipping network and platform and help others do the same.
