Corporate Finance Associate (F/M) - CDI - Paris/Madrid


The Corporate Finance team within DCFG, organized in geographic areas, is in charge of two main areas of activities:

Coordinating and executing AXA Group's mergers and acquisitions (M&A) projects, also including review of disposals, greenfield projects, long-term distribution agreements, internal restructurings, etc. 
Coordinating the capital management activities which contribute to the delivery of 14bn cumulated remittance over 2021-2023. Cash generation has been defined as one of the key strategic priorities of the new Driving Progress 2023 plan

The Associate Corporate Finance, attached to an Area Manager, actively contributes to, and gradually takes the responsibility over the execution of M&A transactions and the monitoring of capital management activities, in liaison with the Group legal, financial and operational teams, as well as at times external consultants

Capital management activities contribute to optimizing the level of capital and remittance of a number of operating entities of AXA Group, including through reinsurance and in-force transactions, organizing the capital allocation meetings and discuss the performance and strategy of the entities in terms of capital management throughout the year
