About L&S

Since its founding in 1919, Lorentzen & Stemoco and its people have helped clients globally redefine the meaning of brokering services. The firm is headquartered in Oslo and maintains offices in all major shipping hubs and financial centers around the world.

Corporate intro

Lorentzen & Stemoco is headed up by CEO, Caroline Tidemand.

The firm has continually broken new ground in advising our clients on strategic transactions, curve specific investments and divestment opportunities and pioneered the facilitation of an international access to Chinese shipping and shipbuilding by establishing the first ever international brokerage in the PRC. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide exciting opportunities for conventional and institutional investors alike, which has driven the timeline of our growth in parallel with the history of modern shipping.

Despite muted global growth, long-term demand for our services remains intact, which serves as a testament to our people. Lorentzen & Stemoco continues to strive for a position as a leading brokering franchise with a diversified business profile.
