For investors looking for another tax-advantaged investment, Sprott has filed and received a receipt for final prospectus dated September 22, 2016 offering units of a new flow-through limited partnership, Sprott 2016-II Flow-Through Limited Partnership. The preliminary prospectus contains important detailed information about the securities being offered. Investors should read the prospectus before making an investment decision.
The Sprott Resource Fund has had strong performance this year, with a year-to-date return of 92.44% as of September 30, 2016 outperforming its benchmark (Blended Index, see table below) by 52.95%. It is worth noting that the fund’s performance continued to remain positive through the month of August, even when gold equities declined by 17%. Despite the fund’s approximate 40% weight in the gold sector, strategic stock selection and tactical asset allocation have proven successful in maintaining the positive performance of the fund this year.
