Rick Rule, Chairman of Sprott Global Resource Investments Ltd., says some of the ‘big money’ that was circling the resource sector has finally found a home. Rick Rule recently commented on a couple of new investment mandates that he believes signal a positive development in the resource sector.
The first mandate is a deal for Sprott Asset Management to co-manage upwards of $110 million in funds along with Zijin Mining Group Company Limited, the largest publicly traded non-ferrous metals mining company in China. $100 million of those funds come from Zijin while $10 million is to come from Sprott Inc., Sprott Asset Management’s parent company. 1
Sprott CEO Peter Grosskopf said: “We believe the combination of Zijin’s technical strengths and Sprott’s resource investment expertise will prove to be an attractive option for investors looking to invest in the mining sector with a focus on gold.”
In another development, Sprott Inc. announced in December, 2013, that it had been awarded a mandate to co-manage a $375 million private equity fund by South Korea’s National Pension Service with a matching $375 million commitment from the state-owned Korean Electrical Power Company ("KEPCO"), the largest electric utility in Korea.
Mr. Grosskopf said, “This mandate marks Sprott’s second entry into the growing Asian marketplace and solidifies our international reputation for expertise in natural resource investing.” He added, “We are committed to continuing to build our institutional client base as we seek undervalued opportunities in the sector.”
