French financial regulator names managing director

French financial market watchdog AMF has promoted Natasha Cazenave (pictured below) to the position of managing director, head of the Policy and International Affairs Directorate. She succeeds Guillaume Eliet, who left AMF after 12 years in regulatory policy to join Euroclear.

Cazenave, who joined AMF in 2010, was a deputy to Eliet since 2015 and head of the Asset Management Regulation Division of the policy and international affairs directorate.

She has also been elected chair of Iosco’s policy committee on investment management in September 2012, having taken part to the development of measures for the Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) directive and to the negotiations which had led to the development of international recommendations in relation to money market funds.

In addition, Cazenave co-chaired the Financial Stability Board’s experts group on shadow banking as from 2015.

Cazenave started her career at Ernst & Young Corporate Finance within the valuation & business modelling team. She also spent eight years working at Deminor, a consultancy firm specialised in the defence of minority shareholders rights.
