Shipping industry is one of the major growth areas of our national economy. A key factor for the successful development of this industry is the proper choice of methods which are necessary for shipping enterprises to take their investment decisions. So far there are no significant academic researches in this field. The major purpose of this study is to analyze the function of these methods that Greek shipping companies use today. Specifically we intend to study: financial techniques used by shipping companies for approval / rejection of their investment plans, the importance of determining the capital cost of the investment projects and methods of calculation, risk factors affecting their choice for short-term borrowing or issuing new shares, the strategies used by shipping companies to organize the medium to longer targets and financial policy. Also, we analyze the investment behavior of small and large size companies. Additionally, we make a comparison between the technics that Greek shipping companies and other sectors companies are used. The method of analysis is conducted using a questionnaire, which is structured in such a way as to make easy, fast and clear, serving the goals we have set.
