Peter Schmutzer

Compliance Officer

As Speedinvest’s Compliance Officer, Peter ensures that Speedinvest navigates the regulatory environment in the heavily regulated financial industry, always eager to deliver clarity and provide hands-on support to his colleagues.

Peter started his career in the financial industry in one of the top-tier law firms in Vienna, Austria, specializing in capital markets and corporate law topics and continuing his focus while working for the Austrian Financial Markets Authority (FMA) and Erste Group Bank AG. 

Prior to joining Speedinvest, Peter held the roles of Head of Capital Markets Compliance and Deputy Compliance Officer at Raiffeisen Bank International AG. He holds a Master’s degree in Law from the University of Vienna and an LL.M. from the University of Edinburgh, UK.

Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Peter enjoys travelling and spent some years abroad during his studies and professional career (Leuven/Brussels and Edinburgh). In his personal life, as a father of three kids, Peter enjoys spending his weekends with his family and hiking or mountain biking in the hills close to his hometown of Mödling in Lower Austria.

I am enthusiastic about new ideas becoming a reality and startups growing to become the market leaders of the future - that’s where you can make a difference!
