The AIM market has also been successful in attracting development stage companies and those graduating from the exploration focused markets overseas. The other major capital markets and associated financial services continues to make London the world centre of mining finance.

Resource nationalism has remained in the top risks facing mining and metals companies for the past five year as seems to be picking up pace as governments seek to transfer even more value from the mining and metals sector.
