John Feneck

CEO, Feneck Consulting Group, LLC

John began his career in 1992 as an equity analyst on the Merrill Lynch global allocation fund (MALOX). From 1993-2019, John was a senior executive for Mutual Fund and ETF providers, spending most of his career at Merrill Lynch Funds (now Blackrock) and JP Morgan Chase Funds. He was ranked #1 in the US in both gross and net sales once at Merrill Lynch and three times at JP Morgan Chase. John has conducted over 250 seminars and has been a speaker at 8 global events. He has also been a contributor to Kitco since 2017.

He was a member of the precious metals PM team at Sprott in 2017 and has developed his own compelling track record in mining equities since 1/1/16. John uses a proprietary methodology, which combines technical analysis with public information gathered from direct interaction with senior management of commodities companies. He believes that building a diversified portfolio of 25 to 50 resource stocks is critical to success. John’s “go anywhere” approach allows him greater flexibility than the average PM, who is many times constrained by prospectus language such as holding 5% or less in any one stock, focusing on tax-efficiency at the potential expense of total return, being 80% invested at all times, etc.

In September 2019, John started Feneck Consulting, LLC, based on demand from commodity companies, especially those in the metals and mining sector. He enjoys working with commodities investors, and started the Feneck Commodities Report newsletter in 2021. For more information, please visit
