About Matthieu

Matthieu has been helping to guide and develop McKinsey’s global Corporate & Investment Banking Practice for more than a decade. He currently leads our European Capital Markets and Investment Banking group. Strongly interested in developing and sharing insights, he directs our global research and publication efforts on corporate and investment banking topics.

Since joining McKinsey in 2001, Matthieu has offered advisory support to corporate and investment banks—from global leaders to regional institutions in Europe and emerging markets. He also works with brokers and exchanges.

Through a period of uncertainty and rapid change, Matthieu has helped executive leadership teams achieve and sustain productivity improvements for their organizations and address a wide range of business, operational, and functional challenges.

An active thought leader, Matthieu publishes on the most critical issues facing corporate and investment banks today, from the impact of regulations and other systemic changes to the emerging role of Digital and Advanced Analytics in capital markets. He speaks frequently at industry events and consults with regulators, and his views have appeared in numerous publications, including The Financial Times, Reuters and CBS News. He is fluent in French, English, Greek, and Chinese.
