PMP Mentors

The exceptional and highly trained Mentors and Tutors allow for a prominent and outstanding Portfolio Management Program. The PMP gives participants the opportunity to gather experience from our mentors, who are financial luminaries in their fields, as well as our tutors, who deliver hands-on insights for research, management and much more. The person that brings all of this together is Mr. Pühringer, whose funding makes the Portfolio Management Program possible.
