Exit from the Euro Area: Uncertainties and Risks

17.02.2017 - Philippe Waechter

The presidential and general election dates are fast approaching in France and the issues at stake are becoming clearer. One question that keeps coming back to the fore is France’s exit from the Eurozone. Commentators focus most particularly on what would happen in the immediate aftermath, once the country formally exits the currency union, and they are quite right to do so, as a number of very relevant questions need to be raised.

Philippe Waechter is Head of the economic research department of Ostrum Asset Management.

Philippe joined Bred Banque Populaire in April 1988 as an economist. In 1994 he became Director of the economic research department. When Banque Populaire Asset Management was created in June 1998 (which then became Natexis Asset Management in May 2003) Philippe held the same position.

Philippe is graduated from the University of Paris I and worked as a Professor at the University of Evry from 2002 to 2003. He regularly works for the print and audiovisual media.
