Hemant first met Peter Schiff while completing his dual major in Economics and Political Science from UC Berkeley in the mid- 1980s. Hemant and Peter took different career paths after graduation, but held similar investment philosophies. Hemant went on to build a successful manufacturing business while Peter went on to build Euro Pacific Capital, but they remained close friends during that time. When Hemant sold his business in 2007, Peter asked him to join Euro Pacific Capital to help him expand the firm. Hemant opened our Los Angeles office, which quickly became the top branch in the firm. Hemant is now part of the team that sets the overall direction for Euro Pacific Capital as well as working directly with Peter in managing Peter’s long-standing clients. He is also an integral part of the firm’s Capital Markets efforts and sits on our Capital Markets Commitment Committee.
Upon graduating from UC Berkeley in 1989, Hemant initially worked as a Pension Administrator, primarily doing tax planning and counseling for corporate pension plans. In 1992, he purchased a stake in an early stage manufacturing company, where he remained until selling the business and joining Euro Pacific in 2007. An avid real estate investor, Hemant also built a portfolio of commercial and residential properties, which he began liquidating in 2005 based directly on Peter Schiff’s advice. Hemant lives in Palos Verdes Estates, CA with his wife Simran, daughter Vani, and son Nikhil. He and his family enjoy travelling abroad and are active in several international charities. He holds FINRA series 4, 7, 24, and 66 registrations.

Investing in foreign securities involves risks, such as currency fluctuation, political risk, economic changes, and market risks. Precious metals and commodities in general are volatile, speculative, and high-risk investments. As with all investments, an investor should carefully consider his investment objectives and risk tolerance as well as any fees and/or expenses associated with such an investment before investing. International investing may not be suitable for all investors.
Dividend yields change as stock prices change, and companies may change or cancel dividend payments in the future. The fluctuation of foreign currency exchange rates will impact your investment returns. Past performance does not guarantee future returns, investments may increase or decrease in value and you may lose money.
Our investment strategies are based partially on Peter Schiff's personal economic forecasts which may not occur. His views are outside of the mainstream of current economic thought. Investors should carefully consider these facts before implementing our strategy.
