Professor Peter Scholz has been Professor for Business Administration Theory with a focus on banking at HSBA since 2013. Previously he worked for over ten years in investment banking and in the private customer business – as a portfolio manager at Deka Investment in Frankfurt am Main and as a derivatives trader and securities specialist at Deutsche Bank.

After vocational training as a finance assistant at Deutsche Bank and studying Betriebswirtschaftslehre (business administration) at Tübingen University, Peter Scholz completed his doctorate at the Centre for Practical Quantitative Finance in Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, where he still gives lectures on finance.
