I am looking for clients who want to invest in gold and silver mining companies.
Sprott is a global asset manager providing investors with access to highly-differentiated precious metals and real assets investment strategies.
We are specialists. Our in-depth knowledge, experience and relationships separate us from the generalists. Sprott’s best-in-class investment products include innovative physical bullion trusts, mining ETFs, and private equity and debt strategies. We also partner with natural resource companies to meet their capital needs through our merchant banking and resource lending activities. Sprott is based in Toronto and has offices in Connecticut, Carlsbad and Vancouver. Our common shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol TSX: SII.
Sprott today serves over 200,000 global clients and has more than C$11.5 billion in assets under management after the acquisition of Central Fund of Canada Limited.
Our company was founded in 1981 by Eric Sprott, an early champion of precious metals and real assets investing. We have grown steadily over the past four decades through organic initiatives and acquisitions, and have expanded our role far beyond our original focus as an institutional brokerage serving mostly small-to-mid cap Canadian natural resources companies. Today, our reach is global, and we are proud of our deep roots in the sector.
Sprott’s unique expertise benefits both the investors and issuers we serve. Our disciplined approach to investing, our focus on risk management and our ability to quickly assess and complete projects is built on more than 30 years of experience working with management teams across different project types and geographies. Our unique capabilities allow us to provide flexible financing solutions across the mining life cycle and to match global investor demand with a strong pipeline of investment opportunities.
We go against the grain when investing. Precious metals and real assets offer low correlation to other assets and can serve as natural hedges. In a time of increasing uncertainty about global markets and geopolitics, we're committed to providing investors with access to these assets and supporting the companies that produce them.
Although precious metals have been coveted for thousands of years, we believe there are significant new opportunities for investors and issuers in the sector. We continue to demonstrate this through our investment innovations such as our physical bullion trusts, factor-based ETFs, liquid alternatives, and private equity and debt strategies.
We are committed to aligning the interests of our clients, shareholders and employees. This is demonstrated by our high level of employee share ownership, as well as by significant participation by Sprott and our employees in our strategies.
I manage client accounts based on their individual risk tolerance. Can be as speculative or conservative as they like. But I only invest in resource companies (gold, silver, copper, uranium, oil, etc.)
One area of my specialty is in private placements for Canadian junior resource stock companies (penny stocks). I only invest in Canadian private placements on the TSXV, not the pink sheets in the US. Employees of Sprott invest in the same deals being offered to clients to further align our interests. We are not a boiler room. I strive to add integrity to the penny stock market be helping people avoid losing money and managing their risk.
