John Browne Joins Euro Pacific Capital as Senior Market Advisor

March 4, 2008

Former Member of UK Parliament, and current investment writer and opinion page columnist for the Pittsburgh-Tribune Review, brings seasoned perspective to globally focused brokerage firm.

Darien, CT (March 4, 2008)  Euro Pacific Capital, a full service FINRA registered broker- dealer with offices in four states is pleased to announce that John Browne, a well respected financial observer and commentator, has joined the firm as senior market strategist. Mr. Browne will work from Euro Pacific's office in Boca Raton, Fl, which is planned to open in April 2008.

Mr. Browne is perhaps best known to television audiences as a frequent guest on CNBC's Kudlow & Co. and as the former editor of NewsMax Media's Financial Intelligence Report and Moneynews.com. In addition to lending his considerable global financial experience in setting investment strategy, Mr. Browne will also write regular market commentary for Euro Pacific newsletters and serve as a public spokesperson for the firm's primary aim of increasing non-dollar international investment strategies for private American investors.

"As a result of his long and unique public and private career, John Browne brings an extremely clear understanding of the movement of the global economy and its impact on private investment portfolios," said Peter Schiff the President of Euro Pacific Capital. "He is one of the few voices in the financial world that have soundly rejected the prevailing notion that economic growth can be financed through unlimited borrowing and spending and that the falling dollar has little consequence for the U.S. economy and the investment goals of ordinary Americans. As a result, we feel that he will be a tremendous ambassador for the Firm."

"I have long observed Peter Schiff from afar, and I have noted that his consistent application of sound economic principles to investing in challenging and competitive markets is rare on Wall Street," said Mr. Browne. "His approach has achieved impressive results for his clients, despite recent market downturns. I much look forward to joining him and the team at Euro Pacific Capital."

John Browne is a distinguished former member of Britain's Parliament who served on the Treasury Select Committee, as Chairman of the Conservative Small Business Committee, and as a close associate of then-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Among his many notable assignments, John served as a principal advisor to Mrs. Thatcher's government on issues related to the Soviet Union, and was the first to convince Thatcher of the growing stature of then Agriculture Minister Mikhail Gorbachev. As a partial result of Brown's advocacy, Thatcher famously pronounced that Gorbachev was a man the West "could do business with."

In addition to a career in British politics, John has a significant background, spanning some 37 years, in finance and business. After graduating from the Harvard Business School, John joined the New York firm of Morgan Stanley & Co as an investment banker. He has also worked with such firms as Barclays Bank and Citigroup. During his career he has served on the boards of numerous banks and international corporations, with a special interest in venture capital.

A Renaissance man, John also has a broad military background. He is a graduate of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, Britain's version of West Point. A pilot, parachutist, and communications specialist in the elite Grenadiers of the Royal Guard, he retired from the British army as a major.
