Much like our founder's predecessor firm, Silver Lane Advisors, NCP is not a household name — but we are well-entrenched in our areas of focus. We are a decidedly proud meritocracy. The people that join our team are well-rounded, diverse in backgrounds and personal interests, and are able to thrive in an intellectually and physically demanding environment. Candidates interested in our firm can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Peter Nesvold, CFA
Founder and Managing Director
A lawyer, CFA, and CPA by background, Peter Nesvold founded NCP after a 25-year career working primarily with asset and wealth management firms. He is a multi-disciplinary investment professional who cut his teeth as a sell-side equity research analyst, rising to Senior Managing Director at Bear Stearns in less than six years. Over the course of his sell-side career, Peter published research on more than 50 companies and ranked in StarMine’s “Best Analysts” poll across three industries. This versatility carried over to Peter’s role as a SMid-cap portfolio manager/analyst at Lazard Asset Management. During his tenure, the team grew AUM more than ten-fold and earned Morningstar’s coveted “five-star” rating.
In 2013, Peter became Managing Director and COO/CCO of Silver Lane Advisors, a premier investment banking boutique specializing in the asset and wealth management industries. In this role, he managed business development and institutionalized the firm's business practices to support its exponential growth. In April 2019, Raymond James acquired Silver Lane and Peter became COO of Financial Services Investment Banking, helping to manage approximately 56 investment bankers in seven cities across four subverticals: banks, insurance, specialty finance, and asset/wealth management. Silver Lane maxed out its two-year earnout in approximately 14 months, after which he departed to start NCP.
Outside of work, Peter is an Adjunct Professor of corporate finance at Fordham University, a Fellow at the Gabelli Center for Global Security Analysis, and has published four books on M&A with McGraw-Hill. He currently serves on the boards of Stratos Wealth Partners and Hampton Jitney, Inc., and previously served on the boards of the CFA Society New York and ACT Research. Peter was graduated from the University of Pennsylvania (B.A., Economics with a concentration equivalency in accounting from The Wharton School) and Fordham Law (cum laude, Order of the Coif), where he was elected Editor-in-Chief of his law journal. He previously was a competitive long-distance runner, having completed 19 full-marathons — including all three U.S. legs of the World Majors (New York, 5x; Chicago, 2x, and Boston).
