Mining sector investment losses

We analyse the impact of mining companies pursuing tonnages at any cost

In a new report we review the market capitalisation of the 40 biggest mining companies between 2000 and 2016. Our findings show that an investment in the sector at the beginning of the century would have been worth 33% less by 2016 than if we had invested the same amount in the S&P 500.

Such poor performance resulted in a wave of CEO replacements and the introduction of austerity measures. Watch Alex Bevacqua, Head of Metals & Mining Consulting, discuss the industry's new focus on ‘value over volume’.
