Peter Panholzer the founder of DynexCorp, specialises in investible manager baskets in close collaboration with Deutsche Bank London. A Canadian citizen, he originally hailed from Vienna where he worked for the International Atomic Energy Agency, as band leader, press photographer, publisher, and architectural historian specialising 19th century architecture, before obtaining his diploma in architecture from the Polytechnic University of Vienna. In 1971 moved to Canada and rubbed elbows with three of the most prominent architects in Toronto, then changed tack and earned his initial laurels in the investment field with Conti Canada, a subsidiary of Continental Grain Company by introducing currencies as an investible asset class in 1979. His Magnum Program was offered worldwide from Conti's branch in Lugano, Switzerland where he lived for the next four years. In 1984 he joined E.F. Hutton & Company Inc., in London Mayfair. In 1992, after founding DynexCorp with offices in Geneva and moving to Monaco, began a string of advisory relationships with Japanese pension funds, Kodak pension fund and proprietary departments of Scandinavian and Swiss banks. His current activity started in 2005 when DynexCorp was accepted by Deutsche Bank on its db Select platform. In 2014 DynexCorp, now a family owned entity, signed as principal party to a 7-Year Total Return Swap facing Deutsche Bank. Peter currently divides his time between the UK, Switzerland and Monaco.
