After more than 20 years with some of the most prestigious firms on Wall Street, Peter Walls and Jennifer Berdell founded Kinloch Capital in May 2019. The firm was founded on the belief that by combining a full range of investment services (securities, real estate, and private equity) and financial planning (high tech meets high touch) Kinloch Capital could set a new and higher industry standard.


Kinloch Capital’s partners are experienced, credentialed, and responsive to client needs. From the beginning, we have focused on earning the utmost respect of each client by serving as an essential advisor and trusted resource throughout their lives.
