GradDipBusStudies(Personal Financial Planning),  , Authorised Financial Adviser

Immigrant, business owner, investor, financial planner. From building successful businesses to bringing his family all the way from Europe to start a new life, Peter understands first hand the challenges and opportunities that face self-employed investors or people looking to embrace big changes in their lives.

Born in Germany, Peter spent 16 years as General Manager of an international mail order company before moving to New Zealand to pursue a different lifestyle. Armed with his passion for people, analytical mindset and 25 years of investment experience, he built and sold a successful business in Levin before pursuing a career as a financial adviser.

Based on the North Shore in Auckland, but helping clients throughout New Zealand and Europe, Peter now has well over a decade of experience, and multiple qualifications in financial planning and advising. The learning never stops either, with his focus on continued professional development to keep on top of a rapidly changing industry and ensure he can always effectively guide clients through their financial journey.

When not helping clients, you’ll likely find Peter spending time with wife Sabine and adult children Katharina and Robin, reading, appreciating the arts, or enjoying himself on the golf course.
