A Rich History
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 35 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 are committed to providing investors with access to these assets and supporting the companies that produce them.
Although precious metals and real assets 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, physical commodity trusts, factor-based ETFs, managed equities, 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.
