AlphaStream Partners with Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners to Launch Emerging Markets Royalty and Streaming Business in ADGM.

21 June 2021

AlphaStream Limited (AlphaStream) is pleased to announce the launch of an emerging markets royalty and streaming business in the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) with the support of Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners Limited (Catalyst Partners).

Co-founded by former investment bankers Prashant Francis and Reyhaan Aboo, AlphaStream will provide innovative capital solutions for mining companies in the emerging markets.

Speaking about the business, AlphaStream co-founder Prashant Francis said, “AlphaStream will have a dual focus on gold and technology metals necessary to support the EV revolution and use its capital to provide financing for precious metal miners, powering the energy transition at mining companies and partnering with Governments in monetizing their existing royalty collections.”

Co-founder Reyhaan Aboo said, “We are very excited to partner with Catalyst Partners and build a company that sits at the crossroads of East and West. We see strong tailwinds for commodity markets as the global economy emerges from the pandemic lull and believe that we are well positioned to fund miners to take advantage of this opportunity in an efficient manner that reflects the long-term nature of the asset.”

James Munce, CEO of Catalyst Partners, said, “AlphaStream is another unique proposition that will further enhance the reputation of the ADGM ecosystem to act as a location of choice for innovation. We are fully behind the thesis and are excited by the potential growth prospects.”
