other sub-sectors of international transport. The maximization of benefits for each one of the special market
characteristics form a highly dynamic environment, with high risk of loss of invested capital. Within this
framework, commercial banks, being the main source of financing shipping market, which is characterized by
high capital and operating costs, have to take into account various variables in order to minimize the risk and
maximize the return. The last is of particular importance considering the recent regulatory framework for banks
applied by the Basel III, which has been elaborated on the grounds of inappropriateness of Basel II.
