Our role is to provide our clients with a tailor-made service that is perfectly adapted to their needs and to the specificity of their situations.

Emmanuel Riou joined 8advisory to deploy a specific offer for players in the financial services sector and those who wish to invest in it. He manages the dedicated FIG offer and deploys it in conjunction with the other service lines and foreign offices.

Emmanuel specializes in financial due diligence (VDD, DD and specific reviews, carve-out) for large groups, investment funds and entrepreneurial structures. He works in regulated environments (ACPR or AMF in France) such as insurance companies, banks, investment firms, PSP and intermediaries.

Prior to joining 8advisory, Emmanuel spent 14 years developing the financial services transaction offering at Grant Thornton, accumulating a very significant track record with investment funds and major accounts in France and internationally.

Areas of expertise

The core value of Eight Advisory that defines me the most

The entrepreneurship spirit

I have always thrived in an empowering environment.

Previously, I developed, starting from very little, a dedicated offer in a very specific sector in which I managed to impose myself thanks to high standards in terms of service and technicality.

I joined the Eight Advisory adventure because I found there to be a state of mind similar to mine, partners ready to accompany me in the development of a team and a real practice in France and in Europe, and by no means intimidated by the challenge it represents.
