Natural Resources (mining & metals, oil & gas)  

The Natural Resources sector forms part of the global metals, mining, and oil and gas sector. The teams have a proven track record of successful delivery for this sector, as well as commodity trading businesses around the world. At Barclays, we aim to be at the forefront of the natural resources sector, working with businesses involved in the extraction of raw materials and the subsequent processing, transport and marketing of their products.

We provide a broad spectrum of financial services and solutions to the natural resources industry comprising advisory, financing and risk management. We have one of the most established mining, metal, and oil and gas franchises in the industry from which we provide a consistent product offering world-wide.

With extensive experience working with governments and local agencies in the most challenging geographies, we’re able to provide expert advice to clients who need a local partner. Our clients range from junior companies at an early stage of development looking to raise finance and guarantee a specific revenue flow for their first project, right through to global producers operating in Africa who are looking to secure major acquisition financing. Being part of a global bank with local presence and an ability to raise funds in all the major mining and metal jurisdictions, we are able to support the needs of our clients and their multinational servicing requirements.

The team is underpinned by local expertise, giving you the hands-on knowledge and know-how that you need, regardless of your size and requirements.

With a regional hub presence across Africa, including the specific key mining regions of South Africa, Mozambique, Zambia, Botswana, Ghana and Namibia, we are able to provide on the ground corporate and investment banking presence to assist clients’ in-country.
