The former finance minister Maria Luís Albuquerque has left the British investment firm Arrow Capital Partners.

It is understood that Albuquerque, who also worked at Portugal’s treasury and debt management agency, IGCP (Agência de Gestão da Tesouraria e da Dívida Pública), will return to the institution she left in 2011.
“I’m back at the IGCP” Maria Luís Albuquerque told newspaper Expresso after quitting her job as a non-executive director of Arrow where her contract was up in March 2022.
At the IGCP, Albuquerque coordinated the agency’s bonds issues on the market between 2007 and 2011. She left the IGCP in 2011 to join the centre-right PSD government of Pedro Passos Coelho, first as secretary of State for the Treasury and Finances, then as minister of Finances. She remained in the government until the end of 2015.
