Sprott Physical Bullion Trusts Direct Registration System

Hold Trust Units in Your Name through DRS

The Direct Registration System (DRS) is offered by and only through the Trusts' transfer agents and enables you to hold Trust units in your name directly rather than through a third-party financial advisor or broker. DRS allows your Trust units to be held in "book-entry" form without having a physical security certificate issued as evidence of ownership. If you hold Trust units through DRS, your ownership is evidenced on the books and records of the Trust directly, as opposed to holding units through a broker who is registered as the "owner" on the books of the Trust.

Overview of the Direct Registration System

The following video is provided by Computershare and is intended for general information purposes only. (Please note: Computershare is the transfer agent for U.S. unitholders only, and TSX Trust Company is for Canadian unitholders.)
