Jacques de Larosière de Champfeu is a French former central banker and public official. In 1992 Larosière became a member of the Washington-based Group of Thirty. He attended the 1982 Bilderberg meeting.

Family and education

Larosière descends from Joseph Thebaud. He studied at Lycée Louis-le-Grand and Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris. He graduated from École nationale d'administration in 1958 and entered the elite French Finance Ministry internal inspectorate known as the Inspection générale des finances.


From 1965 to 1974 Larosière worked at the Directorate-General of the Treasury within the French Finance Ministry. He then briefly joined the private office (cabinet) of Finance Minister Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, and following the latter election as French President, was appointed Director of the French Treasury in 1974, a position he held for the next four years.

He was then the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) from 17 June 1978 to 15 January 1987.

From 1987 to 1993 he was the Governor of the Banque de France.

In September 1993 Larosière became President of the London-based European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, in the wake of the scandals that led to the departure of the EBRD's first president, Jacques Attali. He left this position in 1998 after restoring the bank's reputation and credibility.

In the wake of the Bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, European Commission President José Manuel Barroso asked Larosière to lead a high-level group that in February 2009 produced a landmark report, known as the "Larosière Report" and recommending a broad overhaul of the European Union financial regulatory architecture.[1] The Larosiere Report's suggestions were adopted in EU legislation enacted in 2010 that created the European Banking Authority, the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority, the European Securities and Markets Authority, and the European Systemic Risk Board.

As of 2021 he remains Chairman of the Strategic Committee of the French debt management office, the Agence France Trésor, and advisor to BNP Paribas.

Policy advocacy

In 2000 he co-created Eurofi and became its co-chair together with Daniel Lebègue, then sole chair from 2011 to 2016.
