Sprott Launches Copper Miners ETF

GlobeNewswire - Wed Mar 6, 7:15AM CST

Only U.S.-Listed ETF That Provides Pure-Play Exposure to Large, Mid- and Small-Cap Copper Miners

Copper Miners ETF Adds to Sprott’s Expanding ETF Suite

TORONTO, March 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sprott Asset Management LP (“Sprott”) today announced the launch of the Sprott Copper Miners ETF (Nasdaq: COPP) (the “ETF” or “COPP”), the only1 U.S.-listed ETF to provide pure-play2 exposure to large, mid- and small-cap copper miners that supply a critical material necessary for the energy transition. The ETF is the most recent addition to Sprott’s suite of critical materials-focused ETFs and is Sprott’s second copper mining fund, joining the Sprott Junior Copper Miners ETF (COPJ), which launched in February 2023.

“Global commitments to meet net-zero emissions by 2050 are reliant upon copper-intensive electrification initiatives, such as expanding power grids, building clean energy infrastructure like wind turbines and solar panels, and manufacturing more electric vehicles,” said John Ciampaglia, CEO of Sprott Asset Management. “Despite growing investor interest in copper as the energy transition gains momentum, it’s been challenging for investors to gain targeted exposure to copper miners. We’re pleased to offer a focused opportunity to invest in copper miners through this ETF.”

The Sprott Copper Miners ETF seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the total return performance of the Nasdaq Sprott Copper Miners™ Index (NSCOPP™).

The Funds are not suitable for all investors. There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including the loss of money. The Funds are non-diversified and can invest a greater portion of assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified fund. As a result, changes in the market value of a single investment could cause greater fluctuations in share price than would occur in a diversified fund.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are bought and sold through exchange trading at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. “Authorized participants” may trade directly with the Fund, typically in blocks of 10,000 shares.

Funds that emphasize investments in small/mid-cap companies will generally experience greater price volatility. Diversification does not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses. ETFs are considered to have continuous liquidity because they allow for an individual to trade throughout the day. A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses, affect the Fund’s performance.
