Managing Director, Newport BeachEuro Pacific Capital
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 the 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.
