Peter Attard Montalto

South Africa Economist, Nomura International


Born in Hertfordshire United Kingdom

Peter Attard Montalto is an Executive Director and Senior Emerging Markets Economist and Strategist at the Japanese investment bank Nomura covering South Africa as well as Emerging Europe. He has responsibility for devising both the long run outlook and high frequency commentary and forecasting on these countries. Peter acts as a key link between the bank, investors and policy makers in South Africa and hosts regular events between top level policy makers and significant global investors. He also looks at issues such as long run currency valuation and cross-regional macroeconomic and financial stability risks as well as issues of global balance of payments risks and imbalances in global emerging markets.

He works across the bank with clients of the fixed income and equities businesses as well as investment banking (leveraging Nomura’s joint venture in South Africa with Newman Lowther Associates), Nomura's large retail client base in Japan (his research is translated and distributed to retail clients) and other organisations such as think tanks and governments. Peter has advised on a number of significant sovereign bond issuances as well as being actively involved in banking deals relating to South Africa. He is also an advisor to a number of major foreign companies operating in South Africa on economic and political risks in the short and long term, as well as an advisor to a host of prospective foreign companies considering FDI in South Africa. He also advises a number of foreign governments and supranational institutions on South Africa.

Peter has a high profile in the media, on BusinessDay TV, CNBC, Bloomberg TV, BBC, his own weekly slot on CNBC Africa and several columns in the FT, regular op-ed's in South Africa's BusinessDay as well as other local media in South Africa.

Peter was previously at Lehman Brothers until 2008 where he also covered South Africa. Peter studied Economics at St John’s College Cambridge where his particular interests were the linkages between financial markets and monetary policy.
