Our Dry Bulk shipbroking business is conducted through all ten of our offices and covers the full spectrum of Dry Bulk shipping markets, from Handysize and Supramax through to Panamax and Capesize.

Thurlestone’s Sale & Purchase team operates primarily from our Monaco office and is active in all areas of the commercial shipping market.

Thurlestone Shipping puts considerable investment into providing timely, sophisticated but succinct market analysis for Clients. As a service, we disseminate a regular and unbiased view on short and medium term freight market prospects. We aim to keep our Clients updated on the latest developments in an ever volatile Macroeconomic environment and to serve as an effective thought partner in our Client’s commercial decisions.

The wealth of data, knowledge and experience accumulated from years of working with clients from every part of the drybulk shipping world makes Thurlestone exceptionally well qualified to help you research and understand a specific issue or deliver a project.


Thurlestone Financial Ltd was established in January 2019 as a complementary division to Thurlestone Shipping. Its primary focus is Dry Bulk Forward Freight Agreements (FFA’s) across Capesize, Panamax, Supramax and Options markets.

Thurlestone Financial offers their customers hedging solutions against a highly volatile underlying physical market to enable greater control of the risk in their businesses.

The FFA market has become a very useful tool for our customers and also a key barometer in valuations on physical period pricing as well as market direction and sentiment.

Thurlestone Financial will be using both Bloomberg and Reuters to disseminate pricing, research and market analysis to aid not only its existing customer base, but also to attract new client interest providing greater liquidity to a relatively young market.
