London – Mining’s Finance Capital

Home to the world’s largest diversified mining houses, London has been the default location for industry-shaping discussion in historic periods of transformation.

London’s position as a genuinely international hub through which globally significant and therefore influential transactions flow, remains its trump card. This, combined with the volume and quality of resources-specific capital houses it hosts, makes it a clear leader for mining finance.

What makes London the world’s mining centre?

  • London’s top-five primary listings are currently worth US$300 billion. In Canada, the top five equities are worth US$82 billion and in Australia they’re valued at US$164 billion. This falls in line with London’s reputation for scale and quality over volume and is reflected in the standing of the London Stock Exchange
  • Investors are increasingly scrutinizing the sustainability strategy and compliance of companies they invest in. London is leading on Environmental, Social & Governance practices
  • London offers world-class finance support, developed over centuries
