Cedar focuses across industries in emerging and frontier markets and diversified technology in the US and Europe. Sector specialties include digital health, biotech, medical devices, SAAS software, AI, Big data, crypto, alternative energy, and robotics.
Peter brings more than 25 years of experience as an investment banker, entrepreneur, and financial analyst covering multiple industries in the US and around the globe. With significant experience and expertise in emerging and frontier markets, Peter has, over the last decade, led the efforts in strategically positioning and building a leading global middle-market investment banking practice specializing in emerging and frontier markets in Africa, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.
Over the past 3-4 years, Peter has pivoted back to the US and Europe in terms of raising funding for tech firms, and he has concentrated on building a robust vertical in biotech, digital health, and medical devices. Key historical transactions include $15 million of convertible preferred equity for a leading micro-finance institution – Blue Financial Services of South Africa – and $161 million in preferred equity for a leading African Universal Bank.
