Almost daily the media contains reports or some reference to the power and importance of a country’s natural resources. On any one day the media may focus on domestic issues such as the price of petrol in the UK, international supply issues or the effect of commodity prices on the financial markets. As a result the natural resources sector is dynamic, internationally focussed and complex.
Of the top ten constituents of the FTSE 100 companies the sector contributes £3.5bn* (48%) of their combined net market capitalisation. No other sector comes close to competing with this market dominance. A similar story is replicated across the other major worldwide exchanges: NYSE, NASDAQ, CNSX, TSX, ASX, JSE.
To operate and work in such a sector requires a deep understanding of sector specific technical, regulatory, commercial and reporting issues. BDO’s Natural Resources team spend 100% of their time working in the sector which ensures they understand the sector, your business and its needs. Our team is internationally focussed with a strong network of colleagues, contacts and connections worldwide.
