I'm Peter Esho and I write here about investments, entrepreneurship and leadership.
I started my investment career in 2004, working at one of Wall Street’s best known research houses, Morningstar Inc. I spent the next 10 years in stockbroking and derivatives. I am often invited by major media outlets like ABC News, BBC, Bloomberg and CNBC TV.
Real estate investment and development
While working in markets, I developed a passion for real estate investing. Having learnt some great lessons at Morningstar, City Index and Invast, in 2015 I decided to build a real estate investment business.
After a few iterations and many lessons in between, today I am the Executive Chairman at Wealthi, one of Australia’s leading property investment companies. Wealthi is backed by VC fund Pi Labs in London and includes investors such as real estate private equity firm EG Private Wealth.
I also own Esho Group, a privately owned real estate development and investment company which specialises in properties along the East coast of Australia. We develop small boutique homes which provide an affordable entry point to everyday investors while increasing rental supply in the much-needed Australian market.
I recently made an investment and joined as Co-Founder of Liv, a coaching platform for CEOs and aspiring leaders. Research shows that entrepreneurs and leaders who get coached are more likely to attain their goals and improve their self-efficacy. I’m a big believer.
Community & philanthropy
In 2021, I completed Social Entrepreneurship studies at Oxford University to give back to my community, particularly the Assyrian national cause.
Assyrians are the indigenous people of Iraq and in 2022 I joined the Assyrian Aid Society Australia (AAS-Au) as their President. AAS-Au is globally recognised as an NGO and a permanent member of the United Nation's Indigenous Peoples' Forum.
I’ve extended my involvement in the Assyrian community in 2023 with the launch of The Esho Scholarship, an initiative focused on Assyrian students who have completed Year 12 and enrolled into their first year of University. The aim of the scholarship is to help students financially and intellectually to become future leaders for the greater Assyrian community.
Twice a year, I mentor at USYD’s Genesis start-up accelerator, a great social initiative which aims to encourage and reward entrepreneurs who have a connection to the university.
