Valentin Allard
Senior Consultant at INDEFI


Having a meaningful impact through my career has always been a predominant goal. I first thought that designing, inventing and creating new products would help bring on that change. I therefore studied Mechanical Engineering in Manchester, which helped me understand the technical challenges of technology.

After working on ethanol vehicle calibration in Brazil, I became fascinated by Sustainable Development, realizing that the products we design, use and consume can have long-reaching effects. I wanted to understand on a wider level the concepts of sustainability. I therefore joined HEC Paris to study the business approach through an MSc in Sustainability and Social Innovation.

There, I became intrigued by the way decisions were made and the impacts that they had. The field of responsible investments and sustainable finance appeared as an essential lever to effecting change towards a sustainable future. Engaging within the financial sphere, I took part in the development of the ESG integration strategy for Natixis Assurances.

The desire to undertake a wide range of projects and deepen my understanding of the financial ecosystem has led me to my current role as a strategy consultant for INDEFI where I advise asset managers on ESG and business development strategies.

I have successfully passed the Level II exam of the CFA certification and am expecting to sit for Level III in June 2020.
