Investing in African Mining Indaba 2016
Charles Russell Speechlys continues to support the Investing in African Mining Indaba conference, and members of our Energy & Natural Resources attended this year.
For those that attended we hope that you enjoyed both our event and the conference itself and found it as insightful as we did. Our team have put together some key points from the conference that we wanted to share with you:
Move to alternative sources of fundraising, looking at Family Office and private individuals as potential investors into mining projects
Increase in gold prices. At the time of the conference, the price of gold went up and since then we have seen a rally in commodities prices
The theme of one of our articles on Shareholder Activism is well timed as it highlights some of the frustrations of investors. This theme was also shared at the conference particularly in respect of the critical importance of good governance and pro-active management.
We would also like to share with you a couple of articles written by our team:
