Who is Peter Hans Teutenberg?
Peter Hans Teutenberg (1967) started his career in 1989 at Fortis Bank. He worked as a senior private banker at, amongst others, Staalbankiers and Van Lanschot Bankiers.
Peter Hans Teutenberg has always been interested in the field of Financial Planning. After becoming a certified financial planner (member of the Dutch Financial Planner Association FFP) in 2000 he successfully received his certificate Master of Financial Planning from the Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2001.
Financial institutions as banks tend to focus more on cost reduction and an increase of the sale of financial products. In that respect the client’s interest receive less attention. Consequently, tension between the bank’s interests and the client’s interest could occur. Because of Peter Hans’ opinion that financial planning should focus primarily on the client’s interest, he started Teutenberg Financial Planning in April 2007.
