Innovative. Independent. Global.

HCF is a leading corporate finance boutique focused on the global metals and mining sector. Our dedicated, culturally diverse team of finance, engineering and geology professionals is strategically positioned between London, Frankfurt and The Hague. We go beyond the boundaries of typical advisory services, supporting the development of projects from inception through to closure.

Our commitment lies in delivering exceptional value by providing unparalleled strategic financial advice. We specialise in sourcing structured debt from Development Finance Institutions and Export Credit Agencies, as well as commercial banks and alternative financiers, including royalties, streams and debt funds. In certain instances, we support our clients by strategically raising equity, sourcing investment from industry participants and financial investors.


HCF does not rely on precedent. Our strength lies in providing creative financing solutions that are tailored to our clients’ unique requirements.


HCF is free of the inherent conflicts of interest faced by our institutional peers. Our advice is strictly in the best interest of our clients.
