This investment is not suitable for all accredited investors and is considered to be speculative. There is no assurance the stated objectives will be met.

1 The sub-manager Sprott Resource Lending Partnership is a relying adviser of Resource Capital Investment Corporation. CNL Strategic Asset Fund Management, LLC and Resource Capital Investment Corporation are investment advisers registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. 
2 Effective for October 2021. Based on these initial offering prices, the net proceeds to CNL Sprott Strategic Asset Fund (the Fund), after deduction of applicable selling commissions and placement agent fees, will be $24.71 per unit.
3 Distributions are not based on the Fund’s performance and are not guaranteed in frequency or amount. Distributions may be paid from net investment income and, in addition, may be paid from offering proceeds, borrowings or reimbursable expense support, which will reduce future cash available for distributions and be dilutive to investors.
Effective as of Sept. 30, 2021. The net asset valuation is inherently subjective and therefore, NAV is an estimate of fair value and does not represent the amount an investor would receive now or in the future.
5 Some natural resource loans may not be repaid as contracted. Loans may cover mining operations in many locations. The Fund generally does not own the mines. These investments may carry risks associated with significant geographic concentration. 
6 The quarterly unit repurchase program is limited with restrictions. The repurchase plan is dependent upon the recent net asset value (NAV) per unit. The program is limited to up to 2.5% aggregate NAV per calendar quarter and up to 10% of aggregate NAV per year based on each of the Fund's trailing four quarters. The program may be suspended, modified or terminated at any time.
7 Persons and entities affiliated with or employed by the manager and the sub-manager and/or their respective affiliates have made a combined capital contribution of $10 million.
The organization and offering costs of the Fund will be limited to 1.5% of the gross offering proceeds. These costs may or may not be reimbursed from proceeds of future offerings.
The Fund seeks to limit its leverage to 50% of the net value of its assets. The Fund may invest in companies that may have leveraged capital structures. There is no assurance the targeted level of leverage will be met or maintained. High leverage typically magnifies any inflation and interest rate risks on the value of the loans to such companies. 
10  This investment offering has an infinite duration. The manager is under no obligation to pursue or complete any liquidity event.
