Franco-Nevada Corporation – The Gold Investment that Works

Top Holding

Vertex Fund & Vertex Growth Fund

December 20, 2017 – David Harquail, President & CEO, Franco-Nevada Corporation (FNV) opened the TSX this morning to celebrate ten years listed on Toronto Stock Exchange.

Franco-Nevada is the leading gold-focused royalty and stream company in the industry with the largest and most diversified portfolio of cash-flow producing assets. The company’s innovative business model, which provides investors with gold price and exploration optionality while limiting downside risk, has resulted in a share price that currently outperforms gold and all relevant comparable gold equity benchmarks.

Franco-Nevada has been a key holding in both the Vertex Fund and the Vertex Growth Fund since 2014. As an active manager, John Thiessen is continuously seeking out companies that provide optionality with large upside and little downside to the portfolio.
