RCF Private Credit

The post carbon world starts with responsibly mined metals

The post carbon world starts with responsibly mined metals


The RCF Private Credit Strategy is founded on the belief that responsible mining is essential for global decarbonization efforts and $2 trillion of new capital is needed to support the global energy transition. Strong demand from energy transition underpins long term positive price trends for specific transitional metals, and a lack of public equity and institutional debt appetite presents an opportunity for alternative credit. The RCF Private Credit Strategy seeks to invest in producing mining and midstream companies and in de-risked, feasibility stage, construction ready, fully permitted counterparties in established mining jurisdictions with an objective of generating attractive risk-adjusted returns and yields.

Investment Highlights

Transition metals focus
  • Public and private companies in the small to mid-cap mining and metals processing sector
  • Financing growth capital for companies with revenues and cashflow; development capital for pre-revenue companies; and special situations, including existing debt
  • Focus on producing mines; permitted, construction-ready projects; and mid-stream processing
Downside protection
  • Secured lending with collateral over hard assets, in secure jurisdictions
  • Investing across the capital structure with a focus on senior secured positions
  • Loan amortization provides a built-in exit for RCF (i.e., no risk of ‘stranded’ investments)
Risk-controlled, early lending
  • Free cashflow-based lending, based on conservative commodity price assumptions
  • Floating rate coupons removing base rate risk
  • Typical facility tenors of ~6 years, with likelihood of earlier repayment and improved IRR due to refinancings after 2-3 years
