MEET THE ADVISERS:

GUY PETERS
SEYMOUR PIERCE

Belvoir’s nominated advisory team is being led by Guy Peters, managing director of corporate finance at the investment bank Seymour Pierce. A qualified solicitor, Peters moved into investment banking in 1989, working at Arbuthnot Securities for a decade before joining Shore Capital in 2004. There he acted for the team running DP Poland, the Domino's Pizza franchise for Poland, on the takeover of coffeeheaven when it was sold to Costa Coffee in 2009 for some £40m. Joining Seymour Pierce in 2010, Peters then led the flotation of DP Poland that year. Peters warned that the 2012 IPO market is unlikely to be “teeming with prospects.” He added that while there has been some recent activity, the market “is undoubtedly more selective.”
