Founder and Managing Partner


Peter founded NCP after a 25-year career working primarily with wealth and asset management firms. A former #1-ranked research analyst, he previously was a partner and Chief Strategy Officer at Silver Lane Advisors, guiding the firm from startup to its position as the top-ranked M&A advisor in wealth management, through its sale to a Fortune 500 company. Earlier in his career, Peter was a Senior Managing Director at Bear Stearns and a "five-star" portfolio manager at Lazard Asset Management.

Outside of work, Peter is an Adjunct Professor at Fordham University, a Fellow at the Gabelli Center for Global Security Analysis, and has published four books on M&A with McGraw-Hill. Peter was graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and Fordham Law (cum laude, Order of the Coif), where he was elected Editor-in-Chief of his law journal. He has also completed 19 full marathons.
