Anglo Pacific is a one-off in this country. It is the only listed business focused on mining royalties – which means the group provides cash to miners in return for a slice of their revenues.
Some of these mines are already in production, some are nearly there and some are at an early stage. Overall, however, the business is designed to offer investors stable dividend growth by investing in a range of commodities from a variety of countries.
Chief executive Julian Treger was appointed in 2013 when the company was struggling. He has worked hard to turn Anglo round and recent results are encouraging. Over the past four years, income has almost tripled, the balance sheet has been strengthened and Treger has broadened the firm’s exposure to premium commodities.
Anglo Pacific Group plc (LON:APF) has a diverse portfolio of assets in low-risk jurisdictions and is the only listed company on the London Stock Exchange focused on royalties connected with the mining of natural resources.
