Investment Approach

Peder C. Johnson, CFA, CFP is a partner and portfolio manager for the Boston Family Office. He joined the firm in 2016 after running his own investment advisory firm, Roxiticus Partners, for several years.

Previously, he was a partner at Parkman Shaw & Co., a Boston-based advisory firm, did financial planning work at MetLife, and worked in marketing at a hedge fund named AlphaMetrics Capital Management.

Peder attended the University of Vermont and Thomas Edison State College and received a Master of Science degree in Investment Management from Boston University in 2005.

Growing up in the farmlands of Vermont, Peder never imagined he would become an investment manager. As a young adult he spent several months hitchhiking across the country and came to appreciate the social and economic diversity of the United States. After a year of fishing and hiking in Alaska, he began a publishing career in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Later, he and a cousin founded a monthly computer publication in Madison, Wisconsin. During his time in the Mid-West a fateful visit to the Chicago Board of Trade piqued his interest in investments.

Peder serves on the boards of the Shaw Fund for Mariners' Children, the North Bennet Street School and the Charlestown Youth Hockey Association where he lives with his wife Alison and their two children. He enjoys many activities but playing hockey with his kids and cultivating a yoga practice are his current favorites.
