Simon Hunt has spent more than 50 years in the copper industry, having begun his career as personal assistant to Sir Ronald Prain, the chairman of Rhodesian Selection Trust, then one of the great global copper companies. After stints with Anglo American in London, followed by helping to start up a copper producer organization, he went into the City of London to gain financial experience. In 1975, he founded another metals consultancy, Brook Hunt, which he left at the end of 1995 to start up his existing company, which focuses on the global economy, China and the copper industry. Simon first visited China in 1993; since then, he has been spending two to three months each year in the country, until very recently, visiting mills all around China. He often has nonconsensus views on the global economy and copper, but they are more often right than wrong.
