Fintech addict, robust financial institutions experience.
Adrien is responsible for the development of AEC Fintech.
Holding a Master’s degree in Finance from ESCP Europe, Adrien has continuously focused on the FIG sector. He has acted as a financial advisor on numerous M&A transactions for many clients in the banking, insurance and asset management sectors. He also spent a part of his career working as an internal auditor (“inspecteur”) within the second largest French bank which gave him a deep knowledge of banks and insurance strategic and organisational topics.
His continuing involvement with some of the largest financial institutions has offered him the opportunity to closely observe the emergence of Fintech.
After an initial experience at Lazard Frères where he met and worked with Stéphane Olmi, Adrien continued his career at Nomura (ex-Lehman Brothers) in London within the M&A FIG team. On his return to Paris, he joined the BPCE internal audit team (“Inspection Générale”) where he covered investment banking and retail banking. Prior to joining AEC Partners, Adrien was Associate at HSBC where he covered the French and Benelux FIG M&A sector and developed a strong interest in the Fintech start-ups.
LSE graduate with a passion for financial services, Pierre started his career at BNP Paribas’ FIG team in London, working on the origination and execution of M&A transactions throughout Europe. He has developed a deep knowledge of the European banking, insurance and asset management landscapes and regulations, and became passionate about alternative lending and challenger banks. This led him to work at iwoca, a leading European Fintech in small business lending, where he worked across both finance and strategy, helping the leadership team develop the business in the UK and abroad. Pierre joined AEC in February 2017. He holds an MSc in Management from the London School of Economics (LSE).
