SGDM Overview

Sprott Gold Miners Exchange Traded Fund

Sprott Gold Miners Exchange Traded Fund (NYSE: SGDM) seeks to deliver exposure to the Sprott Zacks Gold Miners Index (NYSE: ZAXSGDM). The Index aims to track the performance of large to mid-capitalization gold companies whose stocks are listed on major U.S. exchanges.

The Index uses a transparent, rules-based methodology that is designed to identify 25 gold stocks with the highest beta to the spot price of gold, with each stock's weighting in the index adjusted based on its quarterly revenue growth on a year-over-year basis and the quality of its balance sheet, as measured by long-term debt to equity. The Index is rebalanced on a quarterly basis to incorporate the latest financial data into the screening process. The Index can also invest to a lesser degree in silver companies that meet the above criteria.

Why Sprott Zacks Gold Miners Index?

  • The Index seeks to outperform a purely passive representation of the gold and silver mining industry
  • Transparent, rules-based methodology designed to overweight gold stocks with attractive investment merits relative to the other stocks in the index
  • Weighting methodology seeks to emphasize gold stocks with the highest quarterly revenue growth measured on a year-over-year basis and stronger relative balance sheets as measured by long-term debt to equity
  • The stock selection and index weighting criteria were co-developed by Sprott Asset Management, a leading, long-time gold sector investor, and Zacks Index Services
  • Quarterly rebalancing seeks to ensure that the latest company results are reflected in the composition and weighting of the index

SGDJ Overview

Sprott Gold Miners Exchange Traded Fund

Sprott Junior Gold Miners Exchange Traded Fund (NYSE: SGDJ) seeks to deliver exposure to the Sprott Zacks Junior Gold Miners Index (NYSE: ZAXSGDJ). This factor- based Index aims to track the performance of small-capitalization gold companies whose stocks are listed on major U.S. and Canadian exchanges.

The Index uses a transparent, rules-based methodology that is designed to identify between 30 to 40 junior gold stocks with market capitalization between $250 million and $2 billion. Excluding companies with market capitalization below $250 million aims to exclude very early stage exploration companies whose historical success rate is low.

Each stock’s weighting in the Index is adjusted based on 2 company factors 1) Revenue Growth and 2) Price Momentum. The Index is reconstituted on a semi-annual basis, in November and May, to incorporate the latest factor scores into the selection and weighting process. The Index can also invest to a lesser degree in junior silver companies that meet the above criteria.

Why Sprott Zacks Junior Gold Miners Index?

  • The stock selection and weighting criteria were co-developed by Sprott Asset Management LP, a leading, long-time gold sector investor, and Zacks Index Services.
  • The Index seeks to outperform a passive representation of the junior gold and silver mining industry.
  • The Index methodology tends to favor junior and intermediate producers versus early stage exploration companies whose historical success rate is low.
  • The factor-based Index methodology seeks to emphasize companies with the strongest relative revenue growth and price momentum, two factors that historically have been strong predictors of long-term stock performance for junior gold miners.
  • Semi-annual rebalancing seeks to ensure that the latest company results are reflected in the composition and weighting of the Index.
