Coal To Outperform

We believe Russia's coal mining industry holds great promise for rapid growth over the long term. President Vladimir Putin plans to spend an estimated USD123bn developing the country's coal reserves, alongside major investment into logistics and engineering capacities. Furthermore, we believe Russian coal miners will benefit from rising coal demand from Asia and a handful of infrastructure projects are underway to facilitate greater coal trade flows.

Crucially, the Russian government will continue to maintain a strong influence on the mining industry. For instance, total palladium supply from Russia is complicated by palladium sales from government stockpiles, which are very large relative to primary production. Foreign firms are also restricted in investing in the industry. Companies seeking to develop a 'strategic resource', defined as a region with more than...
