The Scot Group is the vision of our President and founder Derek Lamb who has closely observed from afar the evolution of opportunities related to the mining sector in Ecuador for several years.
Derek wanted to maximize these opportunities by leveraging his network, experience, passion, expertise and exposure from living and working in developing countries and high risk environments since 1999, commencing in the Amazon basin of Ecuador.
He established The Scot Group in 2017 by investing and moving to Quito on full time basis and opened up our head office in Ecuador at that time.
Our approach is to use our expertise and knowledge, discretion and diplomacy to provide our clients with a wide range of services that they will need to properly develop and manage their business in Ecuador.
There are many hidden obstacles and risks associated with doing business in Latin America. For over 20 years we have developed a network of trusted relationships and a cultural understanding of what it takes to build and implement the winning conditions.
We provide a wide range of professional services depending upon your company’s objectives. From development and managing the different layers of stakeholder engagement and business development processes. To strategic planning, financing, regulatory compliance, geological surveys, socio-economic development, environmental compliance, collaboration, acquisitions and joint venture agreements.
Our Business Advisory Services is complemented with our many years of experience in Mergers and Acquisitions. Whether you are interested in acquiring or selling a mining concession, or an operating mine, or a business within the supply chain, a Joint Venture or a financing partner, we can make that happen.
