Our approach — small companies, big potential

In today’s marketplace, change is unrelenting. Rapid economic shifts, abrupt demand fluctuations, emerging technologies and changing legislation, all make markets dramatically turbulent. This is why we focus on micro- and small-cap companies. Fledgling exploration and mine development companies are, by their very nature and stage of development, agile enough to meet the challenges of change. Being poised for growth, they also represent greater potential returns on relatively small investments.

Extensive experience, solid reputations and vast networks underpin the investment approach of KGC and BTSC, at the heart of which lies the knack of picking and backing the right companies at the right time.

KGC and BTSC invest primarily in private placements of publicly-traded metals companies with a market capitalization of CAN$10 to 150 million. Depending on market activity, volatility and opportunities, investment holdings could also be in physical metals.

Our strategy — quality and opportunity

The primary strategy of KGC and BTSC is to invest in carefully selected early-stage public companies. Led by able management teams, these companies demonstrate significant growth potential. KGC and BTSC have access to rich opportunities for investing in quality gold and other metal stocks at discounted levels.
