Clearwater International Business Breakfast

Process of Change – How to define your future, and what to do when the future defines us

Join fdu, Clearwater International and a group of senior C-Level leaders working within multiple industries in the growth, mid and large-cap environments for an exclusive networking breakfast on 17th October.

Leading the conversation will be Chris Smith, a Partner at Clearwater International and a founder of their Debt Advisory team. He has 20 years’ experience in the banking and corporate finance sector, having joined Clearwater International eight years ago from HBOS where he specialised in leverage finance, private equity investment, restructuring and corporate finance.

Chris will share his insights and thoughts into the current main trends surrounding the debt market, alternative debt options, and when and why such options may be of value; bringing some wisdom to what often appears to be a complicated and convoluted subject.

After Chris’s short talk, we will open up the table for a discussion. You will decide upon the focus of our time, but discussions may include wider industry topics relating to finance requirements, growth investment, restructuring and the M&A markets.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain insight and network with peers.  All discussions will be held under Chatham House rules and the meeting will finish at 10:00am sharp.
