Franco-Nevada

Our Company

Franco-Nevada is the leading gold-focused royalty and streaming company globally with the largest and most diversified portfolio of royalties and streams by commodity, geography, revenue type and stage of project.

Franco-Nevada’s shares are listed on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges under the symbol FNV. An investment in Franco-Nevada’s shares is expected to provide investors with yield and exposure to commodity price and exploration optionality while limiting exposure to cost inflation and other operating risks.

Our aspiration is to make Franco-Nevada the “go to” gold stock for the generalist investor. We believe that our emphasis on minimizing risk, paying dividends and maintaining a strong balance sheet along with high environmental, social and governance standards is attractive to generalist investors.



Our Approach

Franco-Nevada is committed to being the gold investment that works; for our shareholders, our operating partners and our communities.



Our Performance

Since our initial public offering over 13 years ago, our share price has outperformed the gold price and all relevant gold equity benchmarks.

Our Track Record

Over the same timeframe, our margins have remained high and our overhead has remained low.




Our Dividend Policy

Our dividend policy is not tied to any financial metric or the gold price. Our objective is a sustainable and progressive dividend regardless of the gold price outlook and we have increased our dividend each of the last 14 years.




Environment, Social and Governance

Our commitment to ESG starts with our Board and carries through our organization and all aspects of our business. We are committed to diversity and inclusion and have a diversity goal of 40% diverse representation at the Board and top leadership levels by 2025. We are committed to responsible mining and energy extraction. We recognize our role as a capital allocator. ESG is a critical factor when we make investment decisions. Climate change is a significant risk to society and we recognize the need to reduce carbon intensive activities. As part of our ESG due diligence for our capital allocation decisions, we consider climate-related risks and the carbon footprint of the operation. We have played an active role through the World Gold Council developing the Responsible Gold Mining Principles and proactively engage with operators regarding adopting these or similar standards for responsible mining when negotiating our investments. We are committed to contributing to our communities, both through personal philanthropy and by actively engaging with our operators to make contributions in the communities in which our royalty and stream assets are located.
