Peter Scholtz is the President, Founder, and lead Portfolio Manager at Scholtz & Company, LLC.
Peter founded Scholtz & Company in 1994 and has over 30 years of professional investment experience. 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. In his free time, he enjoys sailing, fishing, swimming and spending time with his three children and four grandchildren.
Financial Planning for Individuals
Scholtz & Company provides informal financial planning services to clients free of charge. Peter has over 30 years of experience in the finance industry and is happy to share his knowledge regarding any financial planning type problem including estate planning, retirement planning, and budgeting.
To achieve your investment goals, we are currently offering a broad range of investment strategies (All Cap Equity, Balanced, Income, Small Cap Equity, and Tactical Allocation) which provide general parameters around which we customize individual portfolios for clients.
After an in-depth review of a new clients financial circumstances, Portfolio Managers build a customized portfolio for the client according to these return and risk goals. For example, with respect to particularly conservative clients, Portfolio Managers will focus on less risky securities (e.g. large, dividend paying companies) while clients with higher risk tolerances are more apt to invest in higher return potential companies.
