About Raptor

A Golden Opportunity

An exciting opportunity has been created by banks, institutional investors, and larger acquisitive mining companies through their focusing solely on large-scale mining opportunities.

These institutions often deem gold resources of less than 1 million ounces to be too small for their investment, leaving many mining operations unable to find viable funding sources.

This gives Raptor a fantastic opportunity to select from hundreds of medium-scale gold mining projects seeking capital from innovative finance solutions that are usually otherwise ignored by traditional lenders.

When investing in the Raptor ISA bond, your money will be used to provide finance to mining operations around the world, enabling them to initiate new operations and increase production.

A Diligent Team

The Raptor team has decades of combined experience in the financial industry and in public and private mining companies from early stage exploration through to full scale mining operations. Applying this experience with exhaustive research and due diligence, they identify high-grade, low-cost development-stage gold mining projects to invest in through innovative royalty & streaming finance.

Please note past experience is not a reliable indicator of future results.

A Proven Model

In 2018 Paul Ray, Tom Rowcliffe and Rob Rutter founded Raptor Capital International with a mission of increasing capital availability for responsible & ethical medium-scale mining companies.

They utilise a proven royalty & streaming financing model to enable up-front payments to purchase part of the mines’ future production, at a cost below the market price. The mining company receives capital, immediately monetising part of its future production; and after the mine is successfully in production they are able to receive the gold and sell it for a profit.

Potential High Returns

As Raptor buys the gold at a fixed price without having to invest in the exploration, development or operations of the project, any profits generated from the sale of the metals are fed back to investors through the IFISA at a potential high rate of return. Raptor are offering an 8% interest rate p.a. tax-free*
