Capital Innovations To Sub-Advise Sprott Real Asset Fund

Jul 17 2014 | 9:55am ET

Toronto, ON-based Sprott Asset Management has launched a fourth alternative mutual fund sub-advised by Wisconsin-based Capital Innovations.

The Sprott Real Asset Class fund will give investors exposure to the infrastructure, timber and agriculture sectors. It joins the Sprott Global Infrastructure Fund, the Sprott Timber Fund and the Sprott Global Agriculture Fund, all managed by Capital Innovations' Michael Underhill and Susan Dambekaln.

"Sprott has a long history investing in real assets and the Sprott Real Asset Class offers our clients a convenient means to gain exposure to three attractive sectors through a single investment fund," said John Wilson, Sprott CEO, in a statement. "A diversified allocation to real assets within a portfolio has historically offered investors lower risk and the potential for enhanced returns."

As part of Sprott's Corporate Class offerings, investors will be able to switch between share classes on a tax-deferred basis. The fund will invest in a portfolio of mutual funds as well as direct investments in stocks, REITs and master limited partnerships. The sub-advisor has the ability to tactically adjust the fund's allocation to each sector, within set ranges, to maximize risk-adjusted returns.

Sprott manages assets primarily for institutions, endowments and high-net-worth individuals and is the investment manager of the Sprott Mutual Funds.
