President & CEO
Peter Schiff is the President & CEO, and he is an SEC-Registered Investment Adviser. He is one of the few widely known economists and investment professionals to have warned about the financial crisis before it began. As a result of his commentary on the U.S. stock market, economy, real estate, the mortgage meltdown, credit crunch, subprime debacle, commodities, gold and the dollar, he is becoming increasingly more renowned. He is a widely followed opponent of debt-fueled growth policies and known for his advocacy for emerging market and commodity-focused investments in countries with positive fiscal characteristics.
