During a working life spent involved almost entirely with the natural resources sector, Peter Freeman has undertaken an enormous range of mining finance transactions.
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 an engineering degree at Oxford and an MBA at London Business School, 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 International at its foundation as one of the partners. Warrior was sold to Standard Bank in 1997 and 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.
