Rick Rule, a self-made billionaire, has firmly established himself as a leading financial figure in mining, energy, water utilities, forest products and agriculture since his entry into the securities market in 1974.
The senior managing director of Sprott Inc (SII.T). is also president & CEO of Sprott U.S. Holdings and chief investment officer of Sprott Resource Holdings (SRHI.T).
If that’s not enough hats, Rule is an often sought after speaker at resource conferences and is a go-to interviewee for radio, TV, print and online media outlets regarding the resource sector.
