Ninepoint Partners LP, which manages the Canadian diversified assets of Sprott Asset Management LP, announced Thursday that its Ninepoint International Small Cap Fund is available for purchase.

The fund, which is managed by Global Alpha Capital Management, will invest in a range of sectors and industry groups across the globe, a release says. It adds that management focuses on finding industries and companies with secular growth themes and long-term potential not identified by markets.

The portfolio consists of 50-70 stocks “spread out over a minimum of nine GIC-classified sectors and 18 industry groups,” so no single industry will account for more than 10% of the fund, the release says. The fund also integrates ESG factors, as per Global Alpha’s commitment to that approach.
