Services

Diamond
Mining

Investing in mines can be accomplished in several ways. The easiest and quickest would be to invest in one of the major companies currently involved in this industry, and that is listed on various stock market exchanges. The alternative would be to invest in a new and private mine, which can be more complicated, including various licences, permits, and geological work to be done yet it could be more lucrative.

Rough
Diamonds

The top seven mining companies control together over 90% of the rough diamond market. A secondary market exists, and can be lucrative if strategically planned and executed. We can help plan and facilitate a strategic investment plan in this area.

Polished
Diamonds

Not every diamond would be considered as an investment grade diamond. Distinguishing such diamonds can be a challenge and needs to be reviewed by experts and even more so for Fancy Color Diamonds. We have the experience and know so that your investment would be secured.

Alternative Investment Vehicles

Diversification in this industry is also recommended, and we have advised many clients on setting up alternative investment vehicles and possibilities in order to minimise risk while increasing the potential return on the investment, whilst considering minimising tax implication for the investor.
