Barclays Capital, the investment banking division of Barclays Bank, has appointed Robert J. Champion de Crespigny AC to the advisory panel for its natural resource investments business, headed by Mark Brown.

Champion de Crespigny is the founder and former executive chairman and chief executive of Normandy Mining until its merger with Newmont Mining in 2002.

He has received several awards recognising his contribution to Australian business and the community, in particular the Companion of the Order of Australia, Australia’s highest honour.

He is currently chairman of Crosby|Textor Research Strategies Results, non-executive director of S&B Industrial Minerals (Athens-based) and a board member of Oxford University’s Said Business School.

Brown says: “Robert has an outstanding reputation in the natural resources sector, particularly mining, and we are delighted he has taken this opportunity to join our advisory board. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience and he will be a valuable asset as we seek to source, evaluate and manage further opportunities in the sector.”

Barclays Natural Resource Investments was founded by Barclays Capital in 2006 to invest into the natural resources sector on a global basis, with a focus on upstream oil and gas, upstream mining and power, including renewables.

The team has offices in London, New York and Sydney and is staffed with 16 investment professionals.

Champion de Crespigny says: “BNRI is an exciting and growing business and I welcome the opportunity to join its advisory board. I think the model that BNRI have adopted of partnering with management teams is one of the best ways to invest in the natural resources sector and BNRI have an excellent team of investors in place to execute this strategy. I look forward to using my expertise and contacts to assist BNRI in progressing their business.”
