In 1992, Nathalie joined Banque Indosuez in Paris as senior credit analyst for project and asset-based finance. Thereafter, she moved to the special situation team as originator and structurer, where she executed private asset-based transactions for corporate clients. In 1997, she moved to the securitisation team as structurer for public term and private securitisation mandates. Her experience in securitisation is very broad having worked and executed transactions based on all types of asset classes (residential and commercial mortgages, auto and consumer receivables, leases, corporate loans, operational assets, trade receivables, future flows etc.), jurisdictions (all major European countries, Eastern Europe, Middle East) and formats of execution (public / private, synthetic / true sale, risk transfer). She has also been instrumental in developing synthetic CLOs for balance sheet management at CA-CIB. More recently, she has been responsible of FI securitisation in Europe and thereafter of the London securitisation team. She is now in charge of developing new business and developing activity on large clients globally for securitisation. Nathalie is also a member of AFME securitisation board.
