OCIM opens a permanent office in Toronto
Ocim Precious Metals SA (“OCIM”) is pleased to announce the opening of a permanent office in Toronto, in the Stock Exchange Building: The Exchange Tower, 130 King Street West, Suite 1800, Toronto M5X1E3.
“Since OCIM began its financing and trading activities in the precious metals sector, we have been aware that being present in Toronto, a key financial centre for the mining industry, was essential to our international development ambitions,” commented Laurent Mathiot, Chairman & CEO of OCIM.
Canada is one of the world's top five producers of leading metals and minerals, which account for more than 3% of the country’s GDP. Thanks to its long industrial and cultural tradition, a stable and dynamic economic climate and an openness to foreign investors, Toronto is the world's leading mining marketplace. The Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) is the nexus of a highly specialized business community that enables financing of companies at all stages of development. In fact, 75% of mining companies choose to be listed on the TSX.

Established in Paris in 1961, OCIM is headed by a third-generation member of the founding family.
