Thomas S. Kaplan is an American entrepreneur, natural resources investor, philanthropist and art collector. He is the Chairman and Chief Investment Officer of The Electrum Group LLC, a New York City-based investment, advisory and asset management firm with a principal focus on the natural resources sector.

Born in New York City, Kaplan was raised in Florida. In his youth, he developed a passion for wildlife conservation (which he later revisited as the founder of the felid conservation group Panthera), but found himself adept in the study of history. He studied history at Oxford University and earned Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral degrees in the subject. He wrote his doctoral dissertation on the Malayan counterinsurgency and the manner in which commodities influence strategic planning. While earning his Phd, Kaplan worked as an analyst covering Israeli companies that were publicly traded in the U.S. On a business trip, he met his future wife, Dafna Recanati (the daughter of Israeli investor Leon Recanati), who had attended the same boarding school as Kaplan. Dafna's mother, artist Mira Recanati, introduced him to Israeli investor Avi Tiomkin, who hired him as a junior partner in 1991. Kaplan had impressed Tiomkin by correctly predicting Saddam Hussein's 1990 invasion of Kuwait several years before it transpired. When Tiomkin decided to concentrate his investments solely in Israel in 1993, Kaplan moved on to execute his own entrepreneurial ventures.
Inspired by Marc Faber, who held that precious metals were insurance against the "monetary foolishness" of central governments, Kaplan focused on natural resources investing. In 1993, he founded Apex Silver Mines to capitalize on the improving supply/demand fundamentals of metals. While he was Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Apex, Kaplan's team discovered and financed the San Cristobal deposit in Bolivia, now one of the largest producers of silver and zinc in the world. Kaplan retired from Apex Si
