In November The Armchair Trader hosted its first Beyond the Channel event for sophisticated investors in London, including family offices, wealth managers and fund managers. One of our panels focused on the very pertinent area of critical metals, and for this we were able to welcome Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals [TSX-V:GIGA], and David Gower, CEO of Emerita Resources [TSX-V:EMO].
Both CEO’s provided us with some interesting perspectives on where we currently sit in terms of the supply and demand for critical metals and how governments and large consumers are responding to this.
