Sector Expert: David Franklin
David Franklin joined Sprott Asset Management Inc. in 2008 as a research analyst focusing on equity research within the precious metals and materials sectors. In April 2009, Franklin became the co-author of the monthly "Markets at a Glance" articles with Eric Sprott and subsequently became "Market Strategist" in February 2010. He was named CEO of Sprott Private Wealth in March 2011 and oversaw the business unit of Sprott that provides wealth management services to high-net worth individuals, foundations and trusts. In January 2013, Franklin returned to Sprott Asset Management as market strategist.
The Goldrums of June are giving way to a new dawn for platinum group metals, says David Franklin, a market strategist at Sprott Asset Management. While white metal miners face a variety of challenges, there is an increasing demand for platinum and palladium from vehicle manufacturers in the U.S. and China. And supplies of the hard-to-find metal are vanishing day by day. Now is the time to buy into existing stockpiles of the precious metal, Franklin tells The Metals Report.
"At Sprott, we like NKL, which is exploring a deposit that contains very high concentrations of nickel, platinum and palladium."
