Vincent has worked for over 8 years in the financial industry and brings a wealth of experience in helping banks, asset managers, and insurers meet new EU financial regulatory requirements. In past roles at Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers he helped design and implement processes for complying with a wide range of regulation, including the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In recent years, he has specialised in the sustainable finance domain, leading the regulatory development stream of the EY Belgium sustainable finance working group.
Julia Symon, Head of Research and Advocacy at Finance Watch said:
“We’re at a critical moment for sustainable finance policy in the EU as we will be taking stock of the many initiatives ahead of the EU elections next year. Vincent’s hands-on experience applying sustainable finance regulation brings a valuable perspective to our work and great expertise to our team, I’m delighted to have him on board.”
