Sophie Thevenoux heads new Financial Activities Supervisory Authority

Sophie Thevenoux, Monaco’s Ambassador and Special Advisor for European Economic and Financial Affairs, has been appointed head of the Monaco Financial Activities Supervisory Authority (AMSF).

Thevenoux assumed her duties on 29th January, leading this newly established independent administrative authority, which replaces SICCFIN, to continue the fight against money laundering, terrorism financing, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and corruption.

Bringing her recognised expertise and extensive experience in economic and financial domains, Thevenoux will contribute significantly to the launch phase of the AMSF. A new director, currently being recruited, will succeed her in the upcoming spring.

Sophie Thevenoux previously held significant positions within the Monegasque Administration, serving at the Budget and Treasury Directorate from 1995 to 2005, and later at the Department of Finance and the Economy. In 2009, she became the Minister of Finance and the Economy of the Principality.

Since 2011, Madame Thevenoux has held various Ambassadorial roles, notably in France and with the European Union.

“Her knowledge of international organisations and mastery of diplomatic relations will be invaluable assets in her new responsibilities,” said the government in a statement.
