Year in review
It has been a fantastic year for Clearwater International and our clients; we advised on a record-breaking number of deals, expanded further into Europe, and added to our award-winning team.
Over the last year, we advised on 107 transactions, working with clients and counterparties in 22 countries. Our focus on providing a seamless cross-border experience for our clients continues with the announcement of mergers with teams in France, Germany and Ireland. The addition of these teams has both accelerated our international reach and deepened our sector coverage in Automotive, Energy and Utilities, and Real Estate.
We achieved record revenues of over €80m in the year – growth of over 180% – with strong performance seen across all regions in private equity, debt advisory and sell side activity. In our view, there has never been a better time to access capital for our clients.
The success we have achieved over the past year would not have been possible without the trust our clients put in us to deliver ambitious outcomes, and the energy, commitment, expertise and enthusiasm of our team.
The past twelve months have highlighted the unpredictability of markets across the world. The political spectrum has changed beyond all expectation, creating a new world order and uncertainties that none of us are used to. But we are confident that our depth of knowledge, international reach, experience and expertise enables us to help clients navigate through this uncertainty.
Looking to the future, we will continue to invest in the team and extend our global reach. Ultimately, we are successful because we provide the depth of expertise that our clients rightly expect, we add value to them, and we consistently go beyond their expectations, building on long-standing relationships and expert knowledge in our markets.
The support of our team, our clients and our professional contacts continues to underpin our achievements. As we grow our own business, we will continue to track the success of our clients, sharing with them further exciting opportunities and supporting them in their ambitions.
