Bondstone hires CFO to support €400m Portugal investment strategy

Bondstone, a Portuguese private equity real estate firm launched last month to invest €400 mln in Portugal by the end of 2021, has announced the hire of António Dias as its chief financial officer.

Dias brings more than a decade of experience in corporate finance, M&A and private equity as well as programmatic portfolio management. He joins from MarginKey, a Portugal-based consulting firm focused on small and medium-sized enterprises, in which he was founding partner and CEO. He is passionate about entrepreneurship and the private equity industry, having previously served at a leading Portuguese private equity firm, Oxy Capital.

With offices in Lisbon and Porto, Bondstone plans to deploy a total investment of €400 mln in Portugal real estate by the end of 2021, by co-investing with prominent investors in value-add and opportunistic strategies in the commercial and residential sectors. The strategies will include development, refurbishment and repositioning projects.

The firm was founded by Paulo Loureiro, a Portuguese real estate entrepreneur and a former executive director at Morgan Stanley in New York.
