INN asked CEOs and executives to explain why royalty and streaming companies can be a compelling investment. Here’s what they said.
Royalty and streaming companies are a popular choice among expert investors, with many saying they are a good place to put money.
The main benefit of these companies is that they offer exposure to metals without the same risk typically attached to exploration and mining companies.
In streaming agreements, a company pays a set price upfront to receive all or part of a mine’s future production; the company may also make additional agreed-upon payments when delivery happens. In royalty agreements, a company makes an upfront payment to earn a percentage of revenue generated from a mine.
