Investment banking and asset management firm, Alantra, has expanded its equity division with the incorporation of André Pereira-Ambrosio as Director and Head of Equity Capital Markets (ECM) activity in Spain and Portugal.
Pereira-Ambrosio joins Alantra from JB Capital, where he led the firm’s ECM practice. He is a qualified professional and brings 15 years of investment banking experience to the role. He has successfully advised on more than 30 transactions worth over €15bn, including IPOs, capital increases, ABBs, M&A, acquisitions, and debt capital advisory. Prior to this, he worked as an investment banking coverage banker for Bradesco BBI in Sao Paolo and, before that, as an investment banking associate at UBS.
He will also lead the development of the sponsored research/corporate brokerage business, where Alantra Equities already has active coverage, not only on the Stock Exchange but also in the BME Growth segment (formerly MAB) and Euronext.
According to Alfonso Higuero, CEO of Alantra Equities: “André is a great addition to our team. He brings an excellent track-record of transactions and a great knowledge of the ECM industry.”
Pereira-Ambrosio commented, “I believe that we will be able to create long-lasting relationships with clients and issuers, while further developing the firm’s presence in the Corporate Brokerage business.”
