AMF Chair Marie-Anne Barbat-Layani said:

“I have chosen to appoint Sébastien Raspiller as Secretary General of the AMF because of his considerable skills, his personal and managerial qualities, his knowledge of regulation and the financing of the economy, and his European experience. They will be decisive in implementing the AMF’s new strategic orientations and adapting it to the major challenges we face today. The AMF Board expressed its unanimous satisfaction at the announcement of his appointment.”

The AMF Chair also took the opportunity to pay tribute to Benoît de Juvigny.

Marie-Anne Barbat-Layani added:

“Over the past 20 years, including his 11 years as Secretary General, Benoît de Juvigny has dedicated himself to the regulation of financial markets. The Board and I would like to thank him for his day-to-day involvement at a key time in the implementation of a regulatory framework that was considerably strengthened in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.”

The Secretary General of the AMF is mainly “responsible for the operation and coordination of services, under the authority of the Chair.”

He decides to “initiate investigations and inspections and authorizes investigators and inspectors.” He negotiates and “signs transaction agreements.”
