About me: Peter holds a Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management from the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne. He is attending LBS alongside his role as acquisition and investment manager at City ID B.V., a hotel real estate investment platform backed by the pension funds APG and Aware Super. At City ID, he focuses on sourcing, underwriting and managing the transaction process of European hotel acquisition targets. Peter works across all major European hotel markets and is actively involved in the firm’s efforts in building an industry-leading portfolio of assets that meet the highest sustainability criteria in the real estate space.

Having been primarily focused on private transactions in real estate advisory and acquisitions, Peter decided to pursue a Masters in Finance to broaden his horizons, build a strong professional network and strengthen his technical skill set in the areas of investment management and corporate finance. He specifically chose LBS due to its renowned faculty, the strong focus on linking academics to real world practice and the School’s diverse alumni network across the wider financial community. In addition to being a student ambassador and Merit Scholar at LBS, Peter is part of the Executive Committee of the LBS Real Estate Club and a member of the LBS Cycling Club.
