Sprott Physical Bullion Trusts How to Buy

How to Purchase Trust Units

Full Service and Discount Brokers

Sprott Physical Bullion Trusts trade on the NYSE Arca in U.S. dollars and on the TSX in both U.S. and Canadian dollars, as detailed in the table below.

Trust units can be purchased like any regular equity security through financial advisors, full-service brokers and discount brokers. Your units will be held in your name through the third-party financial professional. Units can be purchased through Sprott financial professionals: in the U.S. via Sprott Global Resource Investments at 800.477.7853 and in Canada via Sprott Private Wealth at 855.943.8099. Both firms are affiliates of the Trusts.


Direct Registration System (DRS)

Once you have purchased Trust units through a third-party financial professional, the DRS option gives you the ability to transfer your units from your broker to the Trust's transfer agents (Computershare for U.S. unitholders and TSX Trust Company for Canadian unitholders). DRS is the electronic or book-entry form of security ownership offered by and only through transfer agents and allows a unitholder to hold Trust units in that holder’s name directly as opposed to electronic security ownership through a broker. The DRS option went into effect on October 5, 2017, for unitholders of each of the Trusts (read press release).
