Sector Expert: Steve Cochrane
Steve Cochrane joined Pitfield Mackay Ross as an investment adviser in 1981 after attending University of Calgary. He joined Levesque Securities in 1986 when Levesque opened its first office in Western Canada. While an investment adviser for Levesque, Cochrane also acted in a corporate finance capacity and was involved in some of the earliest CPCs done on what was then the Alberta Stock Exchange. During his tenure with Levesque and its successor company National Bank Financial, he was involved in numerous IPOs including Wilan and Resverlogix. Cochrane joined Blackmont/Macquarie in 2003. Since 2003, Cochrane has spent a lot of time in Asia and Southeast Asia assisting companies raising funds and listing on the TSX Venture Exchange.

When that divergence occurs, it's the best opportunity to invest. Cochrane sees such a divergence right now in Cambodia, a land with vast untapped resources. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he talks about how investors can profit from Cambodia's entrance onto the world economic stage, as well as promising companies in far-flung locales.
"While it's still very early, ANK is starting to see a potential 150–200 Koz resource materialize."
