COVID-19 latest information from AXA Investment Managers - October 2020
Since January, we have been closely monitoring the global progression of the COVID-19 virus, and have progressively implemented measures intended to safeguard our employees’ health and safety and the continuity of our business. AXA IM’s management team is fully mobilised to address any issue COVID-19 may cause and is acting accordingly.
Following the decisions of various governments in March, we implemented a set of measures which saw most of our staff globally switch to remote working, or to an alternate team mode for a limited number of teams.
At the beginning of May, certain jurisdictions imposed an easing of lockdown restrictions. In most cases, we continue to work remotely. We enacted the first phase of returning to office sites when we were completely satisfied that all measures in the workplace had been taken to protect the health of our employees. This return was gradual, based on evolving recommendations, and on an alternate team mode, and / on a voluntary basis – ensuring all social distancing requirements continue to be met without interruption to our service.
We continued to follow government recommendations and from October, when many countries imposed new lockdown restrictions, most of our employees returned to working remotely full time.
We remain fully aligned with AXA Group’s guidelines and continue to maintain an equivalent level of services to our clients in this period.
