Peter J. Quinn, CFA

Peter Quinn has worked in the investment industry for over two decades, with job roles ranging from sell-side investment banking to buy-side investment management.

Peter began his professional career in New York City, structuring leveraged finance transactions for a large international investment bank. Desiring to return to his hometown of Denver, Colorado, Peter resigned from that position to work on the buy side as a fixed income analyst for the U.S. subsidiary of one of Canada’s largest insurance companies. Following that position, Peter moved to a boutique investment management firm, where he worked as an equity analyst for a little over a decade before joining Helm.

Since returning to Denver, Peter has immersed himself in the community, with involvement in several civic and professional endeavors. Peter currently serves on the board of CFA Society Colorado, after reprising the role of President from 2019 to 2021.  Past community involvement includes serving as president of CFA Society Colorado and the Cornell Club of Colorado following increasing roles of responsibility within those organizations.  Peter also served as Treasurer and Executive Board member for Wonderbound, and as a trustee of the CoBiz Cares Foundation.  In addition to those formal board leadership positions, Peter has served as a mentor for Minds Matter of Denver and CFA Society Colorado and has taught several Junior Achievement class modules. Peter is a graduate of the Denver Metro Chamber’s Leadership Denver class of 2008, and in 2011 was selected by the Denver Business Journal as one of the Denver Metro Area’s “Forty Under 40.”

Peter graduated from Cornell University in 1997, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, with distinction in all subjects. At Cornell, Peter was a Cornell Tradition Scholar and received the Cornell Distinguished Service Award for three consecutive years. Those awards recognized his extensive involvement in giving back to the Cornell community during the time of his undergraduate study. In 2006, Peter was awarded the right to use the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.

Beyond his professional and civic commitments, Peter enjoys all things Colorado and can often be found hiking, skiing, enjoying a concert at Red Rocks, or taking in a summertime Rockies game. Above all else, he enjoys sharing these experiences with his lovely wife, daughter, and extended family throughout Colorado.
