During a working life spent involved almost entirely with the natural resources sector, Peter Freeman has undertaken an enormous range of transactions for both companies and governments. These include advice on equity raising, funding for major projects, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, asset disposals, government relations and regulatory issues, privatisations, bullion and trade financing, as well as general corporate advice.
After degrees at Oxford and London Universities, Peter spent eight years with Continental Illinois National Bank in Chicago and London, working mainly with the mining and metals processing industries.
In 1981, he joined N.M. Rothschild & Sons Ltd, eventually becoming a director within the corporate finance department, responsible for the natural resources sector. In 1988 he joined Warrior as one of the founding partners. Following its sale to Standard Bank of South Africa in 1997, he agreed to stay on for three years. At the end of this period, in October 2000, he and Peter Cutfield left to form CF&Co Ltd.
Peter is chairman, and a major shareholder, of PBE Group, the leading single source provider of underground safety and productivity systems and technology for the mining and tunnelling industries.
