Following three years (1974-77) at Bankers Trust in New York, Peter attended Columbia Business School in 1978. After receiving his MBA, Peter joined Smith Barney where he worked for 15 years. At Smith Barney, Peter started in Institutional Equity Sales before becoming a Portfolio Manager after several years. In 1986, Peter was part of the initial team to create a customized, individually managed high net worth service which eventually grew to seven portfolio managers that invested over one billion dollars. While at Smith Barney, Peter developed some quantitative models in 1991 that represent the first investment quantitative work ever done at Smith Barney. These models focused on earnings estimate revisions, earnings surprises and relative stock strength. These models today are used for screening stock ideas for investigation. Peter graduated with a BS degree in economics from Ohio Wesleyan in 1974 and an MBA from Columbia University in 1979. Additionally, Peter Scholtz has passed several licensing exams including the Series 65, 63, 7, and 5. Peter currently lives in Darien, Connecticut with his wife of over 35 years.

About LPL Financial

LPL Financial is the largest independent brokerage firm in the United States. If you are looking for a financial advisor that listens, puts your interests first, and provides advice and solutions custom tailored to your needs, then you’ve come to the right place. In today’s world, working with an investment professional is more important than ever. One of the most important decisions you can make is to seek the advice of a trusted, qualified advisor. I believe no two individuals are the same. There are no “cookie cutters” in my practice. Everyone has a unique set of needs and life goals and therefore requires custom advice, investments, and planning tailored to your circumstances. I also understand that the desire not to lose one’s nest egg and not outliving your resources is as important as the desire to grow one’s investments – Whether you are looking to grow or preserve, or a combination of both, I can help.
