Sprott launches four energy transition ETFs


Sprott Asset Management, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sprott Inc has announced the launch of four ETFs focused on providing investors pure-play exposure to critical minerals essential to the generation, transmission and storage of cleaner energy. 

The four funds are Sprott Energy Transition Materials ETF (Nasdaq: SETM), Sprott Lithium Miners ETF (Nasdaq: LITP), Sprott Junior Uranium Miners ETF (Nasdaq: URNJ) and Sprott Junior Copper Miners ETF (Nasdaq: COPJ).

As nations around the world embrace mandates that require sharp reductions in their carbon emissions, Sprott writes that its new Energy Transition ETFs enable investors to gain convenient, liquid exposure to the miners of critical minerals that may benefit from quickly increasing demand, limited supplies and the challenges of bringing minerals to market. 

“2022 was a global wake-up call regarding the importance of energy transition and security,” says John Ciampaglia, CEO of Sprott Asset Management. “Certain critical minerals serve as raw materials that are required to meet the growing need for low-carbon energy, increased electrification and the transition to electric vehicles. Due to years of underinvestment, demand for many energy transition materials now outstrips supply. We believe mining companies focused on energy transition minerals are well positioned to benefit from the significant investments that will be required over the coming decades.”

The funds track indices Sprott Asset Management has developed in partnership with Nasdaq, which will also list the ETFs on its exchange. “We’re excited to support Sprott Asset Management with the launch of four Energy Transition ETFs as both the index provider and listing partner,” says Giang Bui, Head of US Exchange Traded Products at Nasdaq. “Fuelled by innovation, Nasdaq seeks to continue expanding our suite of unique indices that provides meaningful ways for the investment community to track the companies transforming tomorrow.”
