McQuilling Partners announced today they have formed a new joint venture company with the private investment firm, Atlas Holdings Hong Kong Ltd.
Founded in 1999 by Mr. Peter Neave, Atlas Holdings and its affiliates, Atlas Advisors Singapore Pte. Ltd., are responsible for developing maritime opportunities for project financing, strategic investments, divestment work, mezzanine funding, sale and purchase and advisory services.
Prior to his role as Managing Director of Atlas Holdings, Mr. Neave worked for nine years in ship brokerage with Seabrokers, Inc. and Charles R. Weber. His tenure in shipping has enabled him to build an extensive global network, specifically in Asia, where he has strong relationships with local governments, corporations, banks and brokers.

The new joint venture, McQuilling Atlas Advisors will provide clients with financing supply sourced from private equity, lending and alternative financing structures, as well as financial advisory in support of merger and acquisition activities, new business startup, business development and special projects.
“In keeping with our theme of expansion into new businesses related to the maritime and energy industries, McQuilling Atlas Advisors will focus on worldwide shipping and project related finance from one of the world’s most exciting areas of marine and energy industry expansion,” stated McQuilling Partner’s President and CEO, John Schmidt.
“Our Singapore office continues to grow prudently,” said Randy Ho, Managing Director of McQuilling Brokerage Partners Asia, Pte. Ltd. “Our goal is to provide a full suite of services and support to our existing and new clients. This is the next step in achieving that.”
“Atlas Advisors sees tremendous opportunities for project and ship finance going forward. The combination of our experience and relationships in this space with the worldwide reach of the McQuilling Group of companies is a perfect match,” said Peter Neave.
Mr. Neave will be located in the offices of McQuilling Brokerage Partners Asia, Pte. Ltd. and McQuilling Atlas Advisors will service clients through the global network of McQuilling offices.
