Responsible for the “financial analysis” side of HRA, Eric has a degree in Corporate and Investment Finance. He has extensive experience in merger and acquisitions and small company financing and promotion. For many years he tracked the financial performance and funding of all exchange listed Canadian mining companies and has helped with the formation of several successful exploration ventures.
Eric has been interviewed on CBC Television’s Business News and national and local radio in Canada and the US for his opinions on resource trends and is a frequent contributor to several third party publications and a number of resource, gold, metals and market related Internet sites.
He regularly speaks at a number of North American gold and resource conferences. He was one of the first analysts (along with David) to point out the disastrous effects of gold hedging and gold loan capital financing (1997) and to predict the start of the current secular bull market in commodities based on the movement of the US Dollar (2001) and the acceleration of growth in Asia and India.
Eric reviews data from hundreds of companies seeking strong management and finance teams in undiscovered companies for HRA's readers. Combined with good share structures and projects that David like, these companies have the potential to make the HRA list and generate gains for their readers.
