About Peter Scholtz

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.

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.

Portfolio Management

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.

Risk management

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.

Fees are paid in advance for the quarter. Contracts can be terminated at any time with written notice, and no further fees will be charged. If the contract is terminated before the end of the billing period, Scholtz & Company, LLC will refund unearned fees.
