Partner & Director
Peter has been investing in Exuma since 2004. Together with his longtime business partner, Tyrone Munroe, Peter has played an active role in the ongoing development of Exuma, beginning with his initial investment on the island of Little Farmer’s Cay. In 2012, he purchased 31 villas (40%) at Grand Isle Resort & Residences, a former Four-Season Residence, making him the property’s largest shareholder.
GIV Bahamas also includes six lots on Ocean Ridge Estates (next to Grand Isle), Catch A Fire Restaurant and a significant investment with Munroe on Big & Little Farmer’s Cay.
Peter’s day job is in the financial and investment industry. Since 1995, Peter has been a recognized leader in Canadian tax assisted investments, with a specialized focus on philanthropic tax planning. Through his work with countless donors, foundations, institutions, and boards, he has helped generate in excess of $350 million for client donations. Nicholson is also a generous philanthropist in his own right and a tireless supporter of community initiatives.
Partner & Director
Born in The Bahamas, Tyrone returned home in 2004 to begin work on various projects with his longtime business partner, Peter Nicholson Jr. As a Canadian citizen, he was able to bridge the objectives of the team with the unique aspects of working in beautiful Bahamas.
Over the years, he has worked extensively with regulatory agencies in pursuit of his objective of becoming a vital and integral partner in the development of the islands, namely the Exumas. Through his work with GIV, he is keenly aware of the need to provide a quality product to the community, and as a person of high integrity, he provides leadership through the process of potential investment opportunities to add ease and clarity so that the team can make the best decisions.
His many years of experience in growing the company, and acting as General Manager of some of the affiliate businesses, has afforded Tyrone opportunities to foster international relationships, which help to further the goal of enhancing the touristic product of Exuma and to create alliances for building stronger communities that will ultimately cause these developments to be sustained in the long term.
