London Stock Exchange welcomes Taylor Maritime Investments (‘TMI’) to mark the admission of TMI’s shares to trade on the Premium Segment of the Main Market.

TMI is an internally managed investment company with an Executive Team led by Edward Buttery. The Executive Team has to date worked closely together for the Commercial Manager, Taylor Maritime. Established in 2014 by Edward Buttery, Taylor Maritime is a privately owned ship-owning and management business with a seasoned team that includes the founders of dry bulk shipping company Pacific Basin Shipping (listed in Hong Kong 2343.HK) and gas shipping company BW Epic Kosan (formerly Epic Shipping) (listed in Oslo BWEK:NO).

This is a major milestone for Taylor Maritime Investments and provides us with a platform to grow the Company as we pursue our ambition to deliver consistent income and capital growth to our shareholders.
