Shard Capital Partners is delighted to announce that Alternative Resource Capital (‘ARC’), the specialist natural resources financial advisor and corporate broker, has become a corporate partner of Shard.
ARC aims to leverage its in-house specialist expertise to establish a leading advisory firm in the small and mid-cap natural resources space, providing corporate broking, research, institutional sales and corporate finance services for both private and listed companies. Its team, which has multiple years’ experience, complements Shard’s existing corporate finance and broking business, which already has a strong presence in the UK small-cap natural resources sector.
Toby Raincock, Shard Capital CEO commented, “We are delighted to welcome ARC into the Shard Capital partnership. Its team is well known in the resources space, having successfully executed a variety of transactions for both public and private mining and oil & gas companies, across a wide range of jurisdictions. By working alongside our existing corporate broking team in their joint new office on Hill Street, W1, both companies will benefit, gaining exposure to a wider network of corporate and buy-side clients.”
Rob Collins, a founding partner of ARC commented, “We have hit the ground running having secured several mandates and completed our first equity financing. Given the challenges facing many companies looking to raise funds in the resources sector, our strategy is focused on a collaborative approach to deliver results. To that end, we are building alliances with specialists across the financial sector including alternative capital and debt providers. We are very pleased to be backed by Shard Capital and we are already experiencing the synergistic benefits of the partnership.”
