Afonso Lima

  • Associate Director

Perfil

I am a deal leader at Clearwater International based in Porto, with 10 years’ experience working in corporate finance in a broad range of sectors. During this time I’ve been advising shareholders, management teams and institutional investors, completing remarkable sales, buy-outs, fundraises and strategic investments, among other transactions.

I joined the firm in 2008 as an M&A analyst, and since then, I have seen the Portuguese office grow from a local M&A boutique to a truly integrated international company, that offers its clients combined global sector expertise and local knowledge, in handcrafted advisory services.

Before Clearwater, I studied Economics at the Faculdade de Economia – Universidade do Porto (2008) and later, I completed a MSc in Management for the Creative Industries (2013) from Faculty of Economics and Management and School of Arts – Catholic University of Portugal. I also have experience in Not-for-Profit organisations, in educational and cultural sectors.

With Clearwater I’ve had the opportunity to evolve from an Analyst to an Associate Director, leading projects from a sourcing stage to completion, by doing what really drives me in this industry: contributing positively towards business growth, creating value for entrepreneurs, and designing and delivering unique investment and development opportunities.
