An SME team to assist you
Every listed company has a key contact person in the AMF's Corporate Finance Division.
In addition to this regular contact person, the AMF has formed a multi-disciplinary cross-cutting team to assist you specifically. The "SME" task force comprises profiles coming from various AMF departments which interact on a daily basis with issuers and the regulatory authorities on the national and European levels (the Corporate Finance Directorate - DE, the Corporate Accounting and Auditing Directorate - DAC, and the Regulatory Policy and International Affairs Directorate - DRAI). Astrid Milsan, who is the Managing Director in charge of the AMF's Corporate Finance Directorate and the Corporate Accounting and Auditing Directorate, manages this team.
Workshops and forums to help you cope with regulatory requirements
For educational purposes, the SME task force organises thematic workshops to explain the regulations pragmatically (for example, on financial communications, on the consequences of the entry into force of the Market Abuse Regulation – MAR, etc.). These training sessions are also an opportunity to discuss with AMF personnel. They take place in Paris and in the French regions.
