The French regulator Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) just announced that has promoted Natasha Cazenave as Managing Director, Head of the Policy and International Affairs Directorate. She takes over from Guillaume Eliet, who left the AMF after twelve years in regulatory policy to join Euroclear.

Natasha Cazenave joined the AMF in December 2010 as a senior policy officer in the Asset Management Regulation Division of the Policy and International Affairs Directorate. She became deputy head of that division in November 2011, and then head in 2012. At the international level, she was elected chair of IOSCO’s Policy Committee on investment management in September 2012.

In these capacities, Natasha Cazenave was particularly involved in the development of implementing measures for the Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) directive and in the negotiations which have led to the development of international recommendations in relation to money market funds.

On 2 February 2015, Natasha Cazenave was appointed Deputy to the Head of the Policy and International Affairs Directorate, whom she assisted during more than two years in all his responsibilities. In parallel, she was appointed co-Chair of the Financial Stability Board’s experts group on shadow banking, a group tasked with defining a more robust framework to address the potential risks that the asset management industry could represent for financial stability.

Natasha Cazenave began her career at Ernst & Young Corporate Finance as part of the Valuation & Business Modelling team. She spent eight years working at Deminor, a consultancy firm specialised in the defence of minority shareholders rights, where she was in charge of collective actions for investors who suffered losses as a result of securities violations, and the promotion of best practices in the field of corporate governance. She holds a Master’s degree from the Paris Dauphine University in Banking, Finance and Insurance.
