Our ESG Framework

 

          

 

ESG Embedded

ESG risks and opportunities are embedded into AXA IM’s DNA.

As such, all of our funds (excluding index and distribution funds) benefit from strong internal responsible investment policies, active engagement and proxy voting.

Therefore, Controversial Weapons, Palm Oil, Coal and Soft Commodities Derivatives are systematically excluded from our investments.

In addition, an ESG scorecard with scores varying from 0 to 10 and ESG key performance indicators are available for all AXA IM core portfolios.

ESG Integrated

Our ESG analysis is integrated across all of our investment platforms, which allows our various investment teams to take account of ESG risks and opportunities when making investment decisions, tailored to clients’ objectives.

Portfolio managers have objectives to maintain or improve ESG scores or ESG key performance indicators of their portfolios.

In addition to the exclusion policies mentioned above, ESG Integration portfolios apply more stringent restrictions such as Tobacco, Defense, and United Nations Global Compact violations; furthermore, a tight monitoring is performed on companies with a poor quality ESG score.

Impact Investing

A step further in Responsible Investment, our impact offerings aim to make an intentional, positive and measurable impact on society.

They address societal challenges in specific themes and sectors, via both liquid and illiquid funds and tailored mandates.

Impact investments can be used in different projects, such as improving access to education and health, extending the reach of financial products to underserved populations, or reducing the effects of climate change.

Portfolios should be constructed selecting companies that can demonstrate a positive contribution, either through quantifiable measures or active engagement. FIND OUT MORE (impact investing page)
