Our philosophy

At AXA IM, diversity and inclusion are closely linked to our values and to our culture of respect for employees, clients and the communities around us. We always aim to create an environment where everyone feels they belong, are included and can thrive within a diverse community.

Our conviction

We’re convinced that different ways of thinking and varied experiences will be key for our success in the long term.

A diverse workforce helps us attract the most talented people, because they know they can flourish with us and realize their full potential. Diversity also helps us meet the needs of our clients across different markets – both globally and locally. Find out more about the impact of diversity in the boardroom.

Our purpose

Inclusion and diversity also play a big part in our purpose: we act for human progress by investing for what matters.

As a responsible asset manager, we want to lead by example. We do this by actively investing for the long-term to help our clients, our people and the world to prosper. Importantly, that includes investing in our own people. 

Our areas of focus

We expect our areas of focus to change over time, to reflect our achievements and to keep us progressing. We also understand the importance of the interconnected nature of personal characteristics. No one aspect of identity defines us. An employee may identify as being in multiple groups which informs their lived experience.

Our actions and commitments

We are undertaking proactive actions and commit to and support external intitiatives to foster a inclusive and diverse environment within AXA IM and in the industry.

Our partnerships and external commitments

  • Diversity Project UK, is a cross-company initiative championing a more inclusive culture within the Savings and Investment profession. 
  • 30% Club Investor in the UK and 30% Club Investor Group in France, which see to increase gender footprint at governance and leasership levels.
