As head of Eurasia Group’s Southeast Asia coverage, Peter helps clients navigate this dynamic region that offers enormous opportunities but is very diverse and requires a detailed understanding of complex, changing political and regulatory systems to ensure success. He is based in the Singapore office. Prior to joining Eurasia Group, Peter spent 15 years as a British diplomat working with governments, international institutions, and the private sector across Asia. Most recently, he spent more than four years based in Southeast Asia leading the UK government’s political economy analysis of developments across the region. He also managed a large portfolio of technical cooperation projects, working closely with governments across the region and ASEAN institutions on infrastructure (especially public-private partnerships), financial services, trade policy, and business environment issues. Peter previously led, from Beijing, the UK government’s political economy analysis of China and capacity-building projects on financial market development. He likewise negotiated breakthroughs on market access and London becoming an offshore renminbi market—for which he was awarded the Order of the British Empire.
