Advanced Tax Degree

Nationally Acknowledged Financial Designations
Peter’s expertise extends well beyond a steep tax background. He holds a Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and has received a professional designation from UCLA’s Personal Financial Planner (PFP) program. He is also an Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF), which is focused on issues for trusts, 401(k), pension plans and other situations involving fiduciary expertise.
Working With Top Shelf Financial Experts
Scholastic excellence is one thing. The capacity to apply academic training and theories effectively to the reality of actual situations or problems is a difference maker. It is an ability greatly valued in the real world. In fact, Peter spent a good portion of his career working closely with and training many of the top financial professionals across the country in various aspects of tax efficient investing and planning. His clients today still benefit from the extensive network of tax, legal, investment and other wealth management experts with whom Peter has collaborated with for over three decades.
