Sprott Asset Management (SAM) Announces the Launch of the Sprott All Cap Fund

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2008) - Sprott Asset Management (SAM), Portfolio Advisor to Sprott Funds is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of the SPROTT ALL CAP FUND (Fund) on September 18th, 2008.

As SAM continues to expand its product offerings, it is believed that the Sprott All Cap Fund will be an excellent vehicle for investors seeking to diversify their portfolio holdings. Using a 'growth at reasonable price' (GARP) approach, the strategy of the Sprott All Cap Fund will be different than that of other Sprott Funds and will provide Canadian investors with access to investment opportunities in the small, medium and large cap space.

The Sprott All Cap Fund will be co-managed by Senior Portfolio Managers Charles Oliver, HBSc Geology, CFA and Jamie Horvat, LIFA, who joined Sprott Asset Management in January 2008. Previously at AGF Management Ltd., this award winning team managed over $4 billion in assets including the AGF Growth Equity Fund, AGF Global Resources Fund, AGF Precious Metals Fund (awarded best Precious Metals Fund in 2004, 2006 and 2007), AGF Canadian Small Cap Fund (finalist for the best Canadian Small Cap Fund at the 2007 Canadian Lipper Fund Awards) and AGF Canadian Resources Fund (awarded best 10-year return in the natural resources category at the 2007 Canadian Lipper Fund Awards).

The primary objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth by investing primarily in equities and equity related securities of small, medium and large capitalized companies that have the potential to produce above average growth. The Fund will launch at $10 per unit with a minimum initial investment requirement of $5,000 and will be eligible for both registered and non-registered accounts.
