Benoît began his career in 2009 at BNP Paribas and then at Crédit Agricole’s CIB, CA-CIB, in the Structured Finance department. He then joined MUFG (formerly Bank of Tokyo) then ING where he was mainly in charge of the origination and execution of Acquisition Financing and Debt Advisory mandates.

« In the current environment marked by economic uncertainty, inflationary pressures and the ongoing trend of rising interest rates, as well as a rapidly changing debt market (increasing importance of debt funds, restrictions imposed on banks by the ECB), debt advice takes on its full importance and becomes even more strategic during M&A processes».
