COVID-19 latest information from AXA Investment Managers
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 intend to enact the first phase of returning to office sites when we are completely satisfied that all measures in the workplace have been taken to protect the health of our employees. This return will be gradual, based on evolving recommendations and on a voluntary basis – ensuring all social distancing requirements can be met without interruption to our service.
We are continuing to follow government recommendations and remain fully aligned with AXA Group’s guidelines. Our tested Business Continuity Plan (“BCP”), means we are confident in our ability to maintain an equivalent level of services in this transition period.
You can stay up to date with our expert views of the situation, and the impact on the markets, by following us on social media and visiting this page of our website. You will find below all the latest insights and research articles related to Coronavirus.
We wish you, your families, loved ones and colleagues, good health.
