Born and raised in Halifax, Peter is a career private client financial services professional having started his career in Toronto in the mid '90s after graduating from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. Peter and his family moved home to Halifax in 2012 to be closer to their extended family and for the opportunity for Peter's practice to introduce Atlantic Canadians to the additional diversification of private market investments.
Client’s portfolio diversification and asset allocation can more closely resemble pensions, endowment and institutional portfolios where, when suitable, globally diversified public market investments are complemented by carefully selected private investments.* Access to greater asset categories increases portfolio diversification which seeks to reduce overall volatility and correlation within as compared to traditional public market only portfolios.
In his spare time Peter enjoys being outdoors skiing, running and sailing. An avid marathoner having run 8 Boston Marathons and 18 marathons overall, Peter also races sailboats internationally, has represented Canada internationally multiple times and is a Canadian and North American Champion.
Based in Halifax, Peter has clients coast to coast. Clients are individuals, families and business owners.
* It is important to note that individual investors have different requirements and opportunities as compared to institutions and the opportunities offered by Pinnacle may also differ than those institutions. (20200914)
