This is our most popular platform because it focuses on what our clients believe we do best: Identifying investment opportunities throughout the natural resources space without being confined to a certain sector or company size. Our coverage includes precious metals, base metals, oil & gas, alternative energy, agriculture and forestry. There are literally thousands of companies participating in the industry, ranging from the multinationals of the world down to small, start-up exploration companies. We tend to focus more on the juniors (sub $500 million market capitalizations) because we feel we can know more about their management, properties and financial condition. These are key elements to succeeding in this market.
We have what we believe to be two world-class geologists on staff that travel the world evaluating projects for us. Rick Rule has a network of contacts in the industry that we believe are among the best in our sector. Utilizing these talents, we do our best to improve your chance of success in what typically is a very volatile market. The result is that your portfolio will contain a collection of positions in companies that are mostly event driven. In other words, stocks that have a reason to go higher absent a rise in commodity prices. Examples would be exploration success, takeover potential, strength of management, or just fundamentally undervalued. We want a second reason to own a company aside from just higher gold or oil prices.
We do not apply sector weighting in these accounts. There are times where your account may be weighted heavily toward oil and gas; at other times precious metals. Furthermore, we do not fully invest your account upon funding. We buy something for you only when we believe a company meets our investment criteria and is trading at a favorable price. For this reason and depending on market conditions, you may find that it may take over a year before your portfolio is fully invested.
Management fees are annualized, accrued daily and payable quarterly, in advance.
