Debrief of the 121 Mining Investment Hong Kong Event

The debrief of the second Hong Kong 121 Mining Investment Event held on the 14-15th October 2015 can be viewed here (Link to 121 Hong Kong Debrief), 121 Group described the event as:


The second edition of the 121 Mining Investment Hong Kong took place from the 14-15 October at the Island Shangri-La in Hong Kong. The event welcomed 31 mining corporates this year, an increase of 35% on 2014. Continuing to provide a high-class two-day conference with 1-2-1 meetings the event is fast becoming an essential destination for miners looking to meet with Asian investors.

The 121 Mining Investment Hong Kong conference indicated that the appetite for investing in mining is on the return. 71% of the audience were from the financial community and over 90% of them were directly involved in investments. This high quality audience is one of the USPs of the 121 event series. The lack of service providers at the events ensure that the mining companies meet with investors and the ratio is far higher than at other events.

Breakaway Review

Rachel Szabo, Manager Client Services - Breakaway Investment Group, attended the Hong Kong event along with Dr Stephen Bartrop - Director of Breakaway Investment Group and Bruce Hills - Director of Breakaway Investment Group. Rachel met with many of the attending mining companies, whilst Dr Bartrop presented, and Bruce also attended presentations, and met with investors and mining companies.

The feedback from those that attended from Breakaway was that the event was represented by a good mix of mining companies and investors, with Rachel commenting that Breakaway was approached by a few investors personally (without appointments) looking for good value investments.  Breakaway Research clients were pleased to see their reports out in the breakout areas for investors to read and take with them, and overall, the response from mining companies was that there had been interest from investors, and that all it takes is one good meeting for the event to be a success for them.

As at this blog's date, there are a few companies that are in discussions with investment companies, which will hopefully become success stories in the upcoming months. Breakaway looks forward to continuing it's partnership with the 121 Group in 2016, and continue to assist Breakaway Research clients that are attending these events, to get their stories noticed.
