Member of the Regulatory Policy and International Affairs Directorate (DRAI) for the past five years, Domitille Dessertine participated in the creation of the Fintech, Innovation and Competitiveness (FIC) division in May 2016. She has been appointed head of the division, succeeding Franck Guiader, who left the AMF after seven years dedicated to financial regulation, innovation and competitiveness.
Domitille Dessertine joined the Autorité des Marchés Financiers in July 2013 as a policy officer at the DRAI in the Asset Management Division. She participated in European and international negotiations on subjects relating to asset management. In this capacity, she was particularly involved in the European money market fund reform project, which will enter into force on 21 July 2018. She was also a member of the working group initiated by the Financial Stability Board on shadow banking.
From spring 2016, she contributed to the creation of the French Fintech, Innovation and Competitiveness team, in charge of supporting innovative companies and reflecting on potential changes to the regulatory framework to adapt to the increasing digitalisation of financial services. Domitille thus took part in the launch of the AMF’s consultation on the framework for Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) and in the analysis of the responses received, as well as the rollout of the Unicorn programme, which resulted in some 50 meetings with ICO project holders. She also contributed to the AMF’s response to the European Commission’s public consultation on Fintechs.
Domitille holds a degree from the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris and is finishing a PhD in finance from the Université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne. She started her career in July 2011 at the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) where she was involved in several post-crisis financial regulation initiatives, including the work carried out on the identification of systemic entities and on the regulation of over-the-counter traded derivatives.
