Patti Peters, IACCP®

Chief Compliance Officer

Patti joined the Matter team in 2015 and works from our Denver office. Her previous experience at USB and J.P. Morgan Private Bank gave Patti a strong foundation in human resources, budgeting, and process automation, and her skills as an Investment Advisor Certified Compliance Professional® continue to bring value to our firm. Patti has a clear understanding of the myriad services we offer Matter families and how they intersect with the intricacies of SEC compliance.

A graduate of St. Lawrence University, Patti earned a BA in economics before entering the Army. She served with the 82nd Airborne Division and deployed to Desert Storm/Shield as a military intelligence officer. Serving our country is a family value: Patti’s husband retired from the Air Force in 2020 with more than 36 years of service, and they devote the bulk of their philanthropy to veteran activities.

Patti finds nothing makes her more thankful to live in Colorado than road cycling. She has completed several century and multi-day rides in and around her home state as well as an extraordinary cycling trip from London to Paris. Patti also enjoys fly fishing and urban farming—and she’ll drop everything for an adventure with her two daughters.
