Peter Skoufis founded Skoufis Capital in 2011 and serves as Managing Principal and Chief Investment Officer. He works with investors all over the country, providing them with an actively managed alternative to static buy-and-hold investing.
Peter got his start as a broker in 2005 at A.G. Edwards, where he received extensive training in active portfolio management. He moved on to UBS in 2008 and quickly established himself as a rising star—avoiding the market crash of 2008 with a plus 2% return while the Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 sank a respective 41% and 38%. In 2013, he snared a 59% return, outperforming the S&P 500 and Nasdaq’s 30% and 38% respective gains.
Peter brings a unique technical analysis viewpoint to the market and has an astute eye for new market leadership. He excels at the start of strong upward bull market trends and has a long history of protecting capital from major downturns and bear markets. During the recent coronavirus crisis in 2020, he avoided the market crash in March and delivered his clients a 33%+ return for the year.
On his off time, he participates in an extensive weight-training and performance program and also enjoys yoga. Peter is involved in many philanthropic efforts in the local Chicago community.
