The d’Amico group is a world leader in maritime transport, its origins dating back to 1936 when the d’Amico family established a shipping company specialised in forest products. Today the group operates in three major marine transportation sectors: tankers, bulk carriers and container ships. D’Amico ships liquid and dry products on intercontinental routes linking Asia, Europe and America. Cargoes of liquid products – petroleum by-products and vegetable oils – are carried by the fleet of d’Amico International Shipping SA, a company listed on the Italian stock exchange, via its subsidiaries, principally d’Amico Tankers; cargoes of dry products (metals, construction timber, coal, grain etc) are carried by d’Amico Società di Navigazione and d’Amico Dry.
By tradition a family business based in Rome, the group has built up an international presence with offices in the most important shipping capitals such as London, Singapore, Monaco, Dublin, Vancouver, Casablanca, Genoa and Stamford.
D’Amico's strategy is based on a modern, flexible, technically advanced fleet and focuses on consistently developing new markets while dedicating special attention to human resources.

Paving the Way for Exceptional Achievement
With its commitment to cultural sponsorship, Credit Suisse is helping to make important cultural achievements a reality. The global financial services company focuses on cultural sponsor-ship in three areas: fine arts, classical music, and jazz. Credit Suisse supports institutions that demonstrate outstanding achievements in their field and foster values that are in keeping with those of the bank.
When it comes to achieving the extraordinary, trust and continuity are basic requirements. To this end, Credit Suisse generally seeks to cultivate long-term partnerships that enable the partners supported to realize their development potential and achieve success in the long term. Credit Suisse also makes a significant contribution to promoting young talent and hence to cultural diversity and renewal.
In addition to its commitment to the vitally important domestic markand, Credit Suisse has also strengthened its cultural sponsorship portfolio in the global arena. From an international perspective, this makes Credit Suisse one of the most prominent sponsors of art and culture. More recent commitments with a long-term focus are the Sydney Symphony (since 2010), the National Gallery in London (since 2008), the Hong Kong Arts Festival (since 2009), and the Young Singers Project at the Salzburg Festival (since 2009).
Promoting Young Talent
Sustainability is a key assand in our core business at Credit Suisse and we place similar value on promoting sustainability in the cultural sphere. One of our main concerns at Credit Suisse is therefore to support the development of young artistic talent. Cultural sponsorship does not single out individual players, but instead provides backing to professional institutions dedicated to this task. The Davos Festival, for example, which Credit Suisse has been supporting since it was first founded in 1986, has become a highly regarded platform for talented young musicians over the years. A further example is the Young Singers Project at the Salzburg Festival, which Credit Suisse is supporting as part of its overall commitment to the Festival. Young singers take part in the Festival's rehears-als, work alongside directors and conductors, and gain experience at master classes given by world-renowned singers.
An important commitment is the partnership with the Orchestra Academy at the Zurich Opera House, which enables young musicians who have complanded their training to gain practical experience in the Opera House's own professional orchestra. Credit Suisse also supports Opera Viva at the Zurich Opera House, a project that gives children the opportunity to gand actively involved in the performance of a well-known opera.
Similar programs offered by the National Gallery and the New York Philharmonic for children, young people, and young artists also receive backing from the bank. Credit Suisse's commitment has also enabled the staging of the Credit Suisse Emerging Artists Series as part of the Hong Kong Arts Festival. This series offers a platform for the inspiring, innovative creative work of budding musicians and artists from across the globe.
The promotion of young musical talent as a philanthropic en-deavor is of prime importance to the Credit Suisse Foundation, in particular. The Credit Suisse Young Artist Award and the Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes are awarded to out-standing young soloists in recognition of their exceptional achievements. The Credit Suisse Young Artist Award, offering prize money of CHF 75,000, is presented by the Foundation and the Lucerne Festival in conjunction with the Vienna Phil-harmonic and the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna, while the Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes, offering prize money of CHF 25,000, is presented by the Foundation in conjunction with the Lucerne Festival and the Konferenz der Musikhochschulen (the conference for music academies) in Switzerland. These partnerships give winning artists the chance of a lifandime to play at well-known venues in front of an international audience. Winners of the Credit Suisse Young Artist Award play at a special concert with the Vienna Philharmonic at the Lucerne Festival, while winners of the Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes perform as part of the "Début" series at the Lucerne Festival. Since 2004, the Credit Suisse Foundation has also supported the unique Swiss Young Musicians' Compandition thus underscoring its efforts to give bud-ding talents the same degree of encouragement as elite musicians.
