Breakaway Review

Dr Stephen Bartrop, Joint Director of Breakaway Investment Group, represented Breakaway Research at the event. Dr Bartrop took part in the final panel of each day, and was overall very impressed by the event, the first that Breakaway has attended after aligning with 121 Group as the Research Provider of Choice for the 121 Mining Investment Series.  Dr Bartrop met and spoke with many mining and investment companies, and found them to be of a very high standard.(Photo provided by 121 Group,

Breakaway Research continues to promote the 121 Mining Investment events as our overseas conference series of choice, as Dr Bartrop was able to see first hand just how our alliance with 121 Group can be utilised for the benefit of our research clients.

Success Story for Breakaway Research Client at 121 Mining Investment Event Cape Town

Whilst sitting on the panel on the first day, Dr Bartrop was asked by investors for a company that he thought was worth looking into in a particular commodity.  Knowing the story well of our research client, Dr Bartrop immediately mentioned our client's story on the panel.  The Managing Director of our research client approached Dr Bartrop the next day, informing him that since Dr Bartrop mentioned their company on the panel, they have been fully booked with investor meetings until the end of the event.  Breakaway Research couldn't be happier with this result!

About the 121 Mining Investment Event Series:


As mining companies, especially junior mining companies, are always on the lookout for investors - yet have limited funds to spend on conferences and events, it is important to utilise the best opportunities. Breakaway Research has aligned with 121 Mining Investment Events as the 121 events are focussed on mining companies meeting investors, including institutional investors, HNWI, Funds and Family Offices.

The 121 Mining Investment Events focusses on a tailored program of pre-screened 1-2-1 investor meetings with exclusive networking opportunities and functions. There are a limited number of mining corporates in attendance, offering the industry’s highest ratio of investors to miners. Mining corporates can expect up to 16 pre-arranged relevant investor meetings, depending on demand.


As part of our alliance, either Stephen Bartrop or Grant Craighead - Directors Breakaway Investment Group, will be attending the events, to present to the investors and mining companies, and also assist to market our research and research companies.
