Amir Zafar joins Opus as partner lead of Opus Healthcare and Personal Care Team

Category: Company Update

Opus is delighted to announce that Amir Zafar has joined Opus as a partner to lead our Healthcare and Personal Care Sector Team.

Healthcare and Personal Care will be core sectors for Opus going forward.

Amir Zafar has led regional businesses covering these sectors while at ABN Amro, RBS/Natwest and Wells Fargo Securities.

Healthcare is a diverse sector with defensive, growing demand underpinned by ageing demographics, advancements in medical technology and increasing consumerism. The immense challenge of paying for this demand combined with unprecedented innovation in the sector is disrupting business models across the value chain, a trend that has only accelerated in the post-pandemic environment.

The Opus Healthcare Team has deep sector experience across healthcare services, life sciences and related supply chain and the personal care and beauty sectors and provide differentiated sector, M&A and capital raising advice.

The Opus partnership with Mergers Alliance, a leading global network of financial advisory boutiques, enables us to connect clients with perspectives and opportunities across the world.

Amir is a Special Adviser at Ecclestone Associates, consultants specialising in Transformation, Strategy and Post-Merger Integration. Opus and Eccleston expect to collaborate regularly on opportunities within healthcare and personal care.

Dr Stephen Parker will continue to work as a Senior Adviser to the Opus Healthcare Team.

Since 2006, Opus has worked with clients across a spectrum of specialisms, geographies and sectors. Whatever your corporate strategy, short-term needs and stakeholder challenges, we are focused on achieving your goals.
