Sprott Asset Management has hired a new portfolio manager, entrusting two of its hedge funds to him.

John Wilson joined the Toronto-based fund in January. He's now lead manager of Sprott's Opportunties Hedge and Opportunities RSP funds, Sprott said this week.

"John is an experienced manager of long-short strategies with a unique track record of delivering strong risk-adjusted returns to investors," Sprott CEO Peter Grosskopf said. "We welcome his addition to the Sprott Opportunities team."

Wilson most recently worked at Cumberland Private Wealth Management, where he was chief investment officer. Early, he founded alternative investments shop DDX Capital Partners.
