Allan Hochreiter (Pty) Ltd - Introduction

Allan Hochreiter (Pty) Ltd is a Johannesburg-based boutique corporate finance advisory company operating within the mining, and related resources, industries. Where appropriate, and where no conflict of interests exists, the company takes principal positions in mining, and related, projects.

The company was started by James Allan in 2005 concentrating on the diamond and coal sectors in which James had been a top rated analyst on the JSE for a number of years. In 2006, James was joined by René Hochreiter who concentrates on the platinum, and other small to mid-cap, mining sectors.
