M2M Management was originally established in 2006 to manage institutional assets in the complex and highly volatile dry-bulk shipping markets. The business grew to become one of the largest privately owned freight-trading groups in the world, offering its clients unique risk-management systems and a vast experience of managing third-party assets in the maritime industry.
It was the first pure dry-bulk shipping hedge fund to attract investments from major blue-chip pension funds, university endowments, family offices and private equity. At its peak, M2M Management managed $650 million of investments, with investors enjoying a market-leading 85% capital appreciation, and an equally impressive Sharpe ratio of 1.5 (a risk-adjusted performance indicator). The business was a market leader, with a proven track record of adding real value to asset management, typically operating between 60-80 bulkers in the Panamax to Cape sectors. What makes M2M unique is the unparalleled sophistication of the tools it uses to manage its investments.
M2M Panamax Limited (Malta) operates a fleet of modern economical bulk carriers servicing the needs of industrial clients globally, whilst M2M Shipping, London provides management and consultancy services throughout the whole logistics chain.
