Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) Announces Appointments of France Mayer As Retail Investor Relations and Protection Director

France Mayer has reportedly been appointed Retail Investor Relations and Protection Director at the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF).

France Mayer is currently Market Intermediaries Supervision Director “at the Data and Markets Directorate of the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF).”

She will take over as head of the Retail Investor Relations and Protection Directorate “on 1 June 2024.”

In this capacity, she will “join the AMF Executive Committee.”

A graduate of the EDHEC majoring in Finance and with an MBA from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (IADE) “specializing in Finance and Accounting, France began her career at Société Générale, holding successive operational and management positions in the secondary trading team for structured products and complex derivatives. She subsequently joined Lyxor Asset Management’s fund structuring team.”

France Mayer joined the AMF “at the end of 2010 as a portfolio manager in the Market Intermediaries Monitoring Directorate, and in 2014 she was appointed unit head, responsible in particular for the authorisation and day-to-day monitoring of market intermediaries, as well as the implementation of new regulations, such as MiFID 2.”

France Mayer succeeds Claire Castanet, who retired at the end of March 2024.

AMF Chair Marie-Anne Barbat-Layani said:

“We are delighted to promote France Mayer to this strategic position at the AMF, whose top priority is to protect retail investors. I wish her every success in her new role. I would like to thank Claire Castanet for her exceptional commitment, energy and investment in the AMF, first as head of the Human Resources Directorate and then as head of the Retail Investor Relations and Protection Directorate.”

The AMF is an independent public authority responsible “for ensuring that savings invested in financial products are protected and that investors are provided with adequate information.”

The AMF also supervises the “orderly operations of markets.”

As covered recently, the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) in France is telling investors to “exercise the utmost vigilance with regard to proposal investments made to the public residing in France by the digital asset trading platform BYBIT.”
