Simon Popple

Managing Director, Brookville Capital

After completing my MBA at Birmingham University in 1993, I joined the Corporate Finance team at Singer & Friedlander, working on small and mid-cap mergers and acquisitions. In 1997 I joined the Senior Banker team at ABN AMRO before moving into their Corporate Finance department in 1999, where I specialised in private equity. I then became Head of Investment Management at Strutt & Parker’s Real Estate Financial Services before becoming a Director of Topland, one of Europe’s largest private investment companies. In 2008, I set up Brookville Capital, initially this was a capital-raising business, but after several successful investments in gold and silver mining companies – I decided to focus on these. Following these successful investments I started a newsletter with Moneyweek called Metals & Miners and when they were acquired, I set up Gold Speculator with Jim Rickards. During this time I’ve spoken at Moneyweek and Mines & Money conferences as well as done numerous interviews with IG Index on the gold market. With my Australian business partner, I still help Junior Mining companies who are seeking capital, so I’m heavily involved with the mining community on a daily basis – enabling me to work with many exciting companies that are not well known to the investment community.
