Peter’s core focus is currently on the battery raw materials markets and, in particular, the development of market-based pricing mechanisms for lithium. Peter currently holds the position of senior price development manager, where his responsibilities include working at the interface of external industry stakeholders and internal content teams to ensure that key prices are developed to best serve the needs of markets as they evolve. He has also worked extensively to refine Fastmarkets’ pricing methodology and ensure its effective application in markets of varying maturities.
Peter joined Fastmarkets in 2013 and has since worked on the development of several prominent metals market price benchmarks. While his primary area of expertise to date has been the iron ore market, he has also helped establish widely used indexes in manganese ore, alumina and copper concentrates among others.
After graduating with a degree in Geology from the University of Bristol and a Master’s in Mining Geology from the Camborne School of Mines, Peter spent the first year of his career working as an exploration geologist in Tanzania prior to joining Fastmarkets.
