2015 Western CGCA — Deal Making

Curt Bernardi has tapped into the deal mother load at Silver Wheaton Corp., thanks to the streaming finance market.

Bernardi, recipient of the Deal Making honour at the 2015 Western Canada General Counsel Awards, joined Silver Wheaton at the right time in 2008. Silver Wheaton was the first precious metal company to use streaming as a means to acquire silver and gold production.

That means Bernardi has been at the centre of the maturation of the streaming finance market, watching it evolve and grow, as Silver Wheaton has become the largest metal streaming company in the world.

“When I joined, it was still pretty early. The (streaming) industry was still pretty new and trying to find out where it was going to go. It was a great role for me. We didn’t have a set way of doing things. There was a lot of evolution that made it very interesting for me.”
