About

Euro Pacific Asset Management

Dedicated to our clients’ best interests with an emphasis on honesty, integrity, and excellence.

Euro Pacific Asset Management

Euro Pacific Asset Management, LLC is an independent investment advisor focused on providing high-quality, sustainable investment strategies to clients globally. We take a fresh approach to understanding the economy and investing internationally that is not overly influenced by traditional economic views. Chief Economist & Global Strategist , Peter Schiff, has been consistent in communicating this investment approach on television, radio, and in his many bestselling books, and is credited with being one of the few economists to have predicted the housing collapse and subsequent global financial crisis.

Our views on the world economy and investing are anchored by the belief that true wealth is created through savings, capital investment, and productivity growth; not debt fueled consumption. Increasingly, investors are realizing that their exposure in various countries and currencies, if applied regardless of fundamentals, can be a very risky approach to asset allocation and investing. Understanding these fundamentals and their appropriate application is where Euro Pacific Asset Management excels.

Why should you trust us with your hard earned investments?

Building Relationships

We put our clients’ best interests first: As an SEC registered, fee-only-advisor, our interests are aligned with our clients – we only do better when they do better, and our company culture is aligned with our clients’ best interests as well. Not just a dedication to our client’s best interests but also an emphasis from the top down on honesty, integrity, and excellence in all we do.

Communication and transparency are key: We understand that entrusting us to manage your hard-earned money is a big step. Your representative will communicate clearly with you along the way, providing you a detailed plan and explaining the answers to any questions you may have. We also understand the need for transparency so that you can see how we are managing your money. With our Separately Managed and Wrap Accounts, you will have real-time login access to be able to see your investments and transaction history.

A portfolio recommendation to fit your specific needs: We offer a wide range of investment strategies to be able to provide you a recommendation that is appropriate for your needs, custom fit to your goals and outlook. While we specialize in international investments, we have a wide range of strategies focused globally, to be able to provide an appropriate strategy for each client.

Our in-house asset management team provides a distinct benefit to our clients: Unlike other fee-based advisors that may hire outside managers to invest their clients’ assets, we provide asset management services in-house with our experienced portfolio management team. Therefore, our clients don’t pay two layers of fees – one to their advisor and the other to the outside manager.

Leadership & Performance

Our management team is highly experienced: Our investment team of 7 has over 143 years of experience combined, and the shortest tenure portfolio manager is 12 years with the firm. This high level of experience and long manager tenure means our team is well formed and able to use each members strengths for the benefit of our clients and performance.

Generalist approach to value investing uncovers superior investment ideas and allows us to manage risk: Many firms like to brag about the extensive size of their analyst teams, each focused on a specific industry or sector. This stove-piped approach lends itself to highly focused “story stock” recommendations, influenced by the company’s pitch, with blinders for other outside factors that adversely impact an investment ideas performance. Our team is composed of highly experienced managers with a deep understanding of multiple economies, sectors, and individual companies. This puts us in a unique position to understand outside factors that could positively or negatively impact a particular security allowing for a better assessment, diligence and margin of safety.

It’s in our company DNA to take a fresh perspective on portfolio construction and investing: Our company’s investment committee chair, Peter Schiff, has long taken a fresh approach to analyzing the economy and investing and is well recognized for his contributions to global investing. At the firm, this culture of taking an honest assessment of the economy and its likely path allows us to focus on only what is important and true, and to employ that to our clients’ benefit.

Truth and Excellence: Leadership ensures that we maintain a “flat” environment at Euro Pacific, meaning that all managers are on an equal level without an established hierarchy. This allows us to have a workplace culture that values truth and excellence above all else, meaning that the best ideas always win out due to open communication, feedback and introspection.
