ISEG president appointed vice-governor of BdP

 In Bank of Portugal, Economy, News

The President of ISEG – one of Portugal’s most prestigious economics and business management schools – Clara Raposo has been appointed the new vice-governor of the Bank of Portugal.

The appointment comes three years after the exit of the previous vice-governor Elisa Ferreira who took up a job in Brussels as the European Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms.
The economics professor had been tipped for the board of Portuguese bank BCP in a non-executive role, but her name was not put forward for the role for approval by the ECB.
The bank did not, however, cite a specific reason, simply referring to personal reasons. The real reason, of course, is the economist’s appointment to the Bank of Portugal.
With a degree in Economics from Lisbon’s Nova Universidade, a PhD from the London Business School, Clara Raposo has enjoyed a stellar academic career; first at ISCTE – University Institute of Lisbon, and then at ISEG – Lisbon School of Economics and Management.
In 2018, she was appointed president of ISEG where she was a professor of Finances at the Department of Business Management for eight years.
Clara Raposo is linked to various companies. At the present time she is President of the Board of renewables company GreenVolt (2021-2023) and a non-executive board member at telecommunications company Nos.
