The global minerals, mining and natural resources portfolio invests in companies or entities through equity or provision of debt capital that engaged in the exploration, mining, development, fabrication, processing, refining, marketing, or distribution of minerals throughout the world. Minerals will include, but not be solely limited to, gold, silver, platinum (PGM's), diamonds, coal, iron, nickel, copper, zinc, potash, titanium and various rare earth minerals. HAWK may choose to warehouse projects for a period of time or rapidly advance them after acquiring strategic interests in certain projects. These emerging businesses are nurtured and guided often by new management teams as they seek to develop and optimize the business on an approved timeline. The investment strategy is also available in traditional Private Equity Limited Partnership structure.
