Rising commodity prices and global economic growth driven by industrialisation in emerging markets, especially China, has led to a strong appetite for mining stocks. Mining companies require capital to fund exploration efforts and mine development, and historically, equity markets have been the main source of mining finance.
This publication provides a brief overview of different financial markets and how they serve the mining sector. The fact sheets highlight key features of the London, Toronto, Australian and Hong Kong stock exchanges, and include a high level summary of the listing requirements in each of those international markets applicable to mining companies.
The PwC network of capital markets and mining experts across the globe has extensive practical experience floating mining companies from all over the world on the leading exchanges.
