Arnaud Raffin is a corporate and market Finance professor at Grenoble Ecole Management since 2009.

From 2008 to 2016, he has also held a treasury and credit management advisory role. Starting with SMEs clients in 2008, he would continue his career as an exclusive Big 4 contractor, leading him to manage deep treasury transformation projects for large multinational groups. 

These practical missions helped him to be always sharper with GEM students, who expect technical hands-on approach. Today Arnaud keeps daily contact with former clients and teammates, in order to feed his classes with a unique touch of reality.

He is an all around financial practitioner (with experience in asset management and banking as well), fitted to a wide range of missions and needs. Recognised for his ability to communicate with impact, he easily deals with all kind of corporate teams (financial and more), with tact and flexibility.

Totally dedicated to his students and clients, Arnaud is eager to build value added solutions and indisputable results.

In 2016 he launched the "Finance de Demain" Institute, built on strong ethical basements. With the aim to give to students the opportunity to tackle the ethics questions, in a very practical way. Today his daily mission is thinking about the next concrete services that each member can use for free, in order to build its own ethics path.

He holds a Master’s degree in Corporate and Market Finance from French University.
