Peter Harper

Managing Director and CEO


Peter is the CEO and Managing Director of Asena Advisors. He has spent most of his career advising foreign-owned privately held businesses on US market entry and founders and global families on the migration impact of becoming global citizens.

Market entry and global migration are complex areas of tax law and when proper advice is not obtained, his team is also called upon to co-ordinate the resolution of multi-jurisdictional international tax controversies.

Peter’s core focus is extracting value for founders and families, and he believes in a ‘Stakeholder Framework’ to corporate taxation. The ‘Stakeholder Framework’ encompasses the development of tax strategy that facilitates value extraction for founders and families, rather than for the corporations that they invest in or manage.

Specialties: International tax, income tax, M&A, taxation of foreign trusts and inbound investment into the US.
