Kevin DeMeritt, President
Put together the top “hard asset” experts in America, and Kevin DeMeritt would be a prominent member of that group. Mr. DeMeritt is heard every week on some of the nation’s top talk shows, including Rush Limbaugh and George Noory’s Coast to Coast, touting the exceptional promise of hard assets-which are investments you can actually live in or hold onto as opposed to the more common “paper concepts” of stocks, bonds or funds.
Starting in 1987 when he worked as a successful international banker to today when he oversees a hard-asset portfolio totaling over half a billion dollars, Mr. DeMeritt has consistently demonstrated an exceptional ability to anticipate demographic and financial trends and help investors profit accordingly. This is particularly seen in his role as senior partner in Sterling Management, a firm specializing in managing unique cash flow investments for high net worth investors, and as the CEO of Lear Capital, one of the nation’s top precious metal investment houses. But he hasn’t reserved his expertise for elite investors.
He is also the author of The Bulls, The Bears and The Bust, a guide to understanding economic cycles, trends, debt and diversification strategies.
When it comes to the hard asset most familiar to Americans – real estate – Mr. DeMeritt established Keith Holdings in 2002, a privately held real estate investment company focusing on income producing rental properties. Since its inception, the company has never lost money in any year.
Mr. DeMeritt regularly shares his views on talk radio and is a veteran of over 1,000 interviews, discussing the benefits of tangible assets, the perils of Wall Street volatility, the need for diversified holdings, the ramifications of US debt, and what may be in store for investors in the coming fiscal year.
