Peter Gore, carries the Chartered Financial Analyst® designation, one of the most respected in the industry. And, as a holder of the Certified Financial Planner® title, Peter joins an even more select club - merely 2% of all financial advisors globally have earned both designations. In addition to his CFA and CFP, Peter also holds an M.B.A. from the University of Notre Dame.
He also has been a financial advisor for over sixteen years. He tries to learn everything he can about his clients, their families, their dreams, their concerns and their goals. Then he works hard to tailor a plan that makes the most sense for their time horizon and comfort level, and he assesses it constantly to make sure we're always moving in the right direction. He is committed to ensuring his clients fully understand the investment options available to them. Peter firmly believes that with understanding comes peace of mind.
Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Peter moved to the Williamsburg, VA eighteen years ago with his wife, Keri and daughter, Alexandra. Keri works with Peter as Office Manager, and Alexandra is a graduate of James Madison University.
