Ex-Anglo CEO Talks to Private Equity on Where to Next Pump Money

  • Former Anglo boss Cutifani has talked with number of PE firms
  • He doesn’t plan to start a fund, but says it remains an option

Former Anglo American Plc boss Mark Cutifani is talking to a number of private equity firms about new ways to invest in the mining sector as the energy transition gathers pace.

The mining industry is a big emitter, but also plays a key role in the green revolution by supplying metals like copper, lithium and cobalt that are used in batteries and power links. While the sector has been relatively ignored by private equity, the speed of the green push and outlook for tight metal supplies are attracting new investors.
