Clearwater International strengthens its team dedicated to Debt Advisory

Clearwater International continues its development by strengthening its offering through the recruitment of the French Debt Advisory team

Clearwater International, one of the key players focused on transactions larger than 30 million euros of enterprise value, is developing its activity by creating its French Debt Advisory practice whose role will be to support its clients in their various financing challenges related to acquisitions, growth financing, debt refinancing and/or restructuring.

The Debt Advisory team will offer tailor-made advisory services for family owned companies, industrial groups, private equity funds and real estate companies. In addition to standalone advisory mandates, the team will also assist the M&A team in its sell-side and buy-side transactions.

This new team will be led by Laurence de Rosamel, who has more than 10 years of experience in Corporate Finance (M&A and Financial Advisory), for tier 1 mid-market corporate finance advisors. She has been involved in several refinancing, growth financing and restructuring transactions through a diversified range of debt instruments (bank debt, private debt and capital market debt).

This new offer comes in a context of strong liquidity with the rise of new sources of financing which has added complexity to offers for borrowers. “Our role will be to identify our clients’ needs and to advise them in the implementation of relevant, flexible and optimised financing solutions,” says Laurence de Rosamel.

The French Clearwater International Debt Advisory team is already set up and is comprised of 3 professionals, including Paul Assaël who also joins the team as Associate after working for 5 years in Corporate finance for an advisory firm, a debt fund and the financing department of a bank.
