How we serve our clients

Fearnley Project Finance AS was established in 1981 as part of the Astrup Fearnley Group. Its inception came as a direct result of an increased demand among investors for direct investments within the shipping segment. Capital was scarce for shipowners and Fearnley Project Finance found its niche as a provider of financing to a variety of shipping projects.

Fearnley Project Finance entry into real estate started with the economic downturn in the late 1980’s and beginning of the 1990’s. A sharp decrease in demand and high interest rates pushed real estate prices to a record low. Fearnley Project Finance saw this as an opportunity for their investors to enter the real estate market at attractive prices.

Being part of the Astrup Fearnley Group allows Fearnley Project Finance to utilize the Groups’ resources and expertise within business areas such as shipping, offshore, consulting, equity and debt capital markets. Fearnley Project Finance was the first project broking house in Norway and is recognised for integrity, professionalism and speed of execution.
