Axa Investment Managers (Axa IM) has appointed Laurent Clavel to the newly created role of senior international economist within its research and investment strategy team led by Eric Chaney.
Based in Paris, Clavel will participate in all of the analysis and research work conducted by the team and focus specifically on international trade and financial flows, cross-border investments and exchange rates.
Clavel joins Axa IM from the French National Statistical Institute (Insee) where he was head of the forecasting unit and had responsibility for Insee’s quarterly economic outlook.
He began his career in 2005 at Insee and was initially responsible for following the French economy before moving into global forecasting.
In 2008, Clavel joined the French Finance Ministry, where he was responsible for estimating the impact of different scenarios and measures ahead of the 2010 French pension reform.
He later became deputy chief of the Regional Economic Service in Stockholm and financial counsellor for the Nordic countries at the French Embassy in Sweden.
