Role: Clients and Markets Analyst
Business area: Markets & Investment Strategy
How did you come to work at AXA IM?
After graduating from Toulouse Business School in France, where I specialised in corporate finance, I joined AXA IM as an intern in the Research Marketing department at the beginning of 2012. I then had the opportunity to develop my experience as a VIE in London in my current role within the Clients & Markets team.
I wanted to begin my career working for a major player in the financial industry with a global presence. My goal was also to find a company which offered strong career development opportunities.
What do you currently do?
The responsibilities of the Clients & Markets team are to gather and analyse information on markets and client segments to support the decision-making process on client strategy and product development. The team also produces research documents such as white papers and Investment Acumen for clients, covering the latest trends and challenges in the asset management industry.
My role involves sizing markets to follow the evolution of our market share and help sales prioritization, producing regular publications and replying to ad hoc requests about institutional and retail market trends for various internal stakeholders. I also contribute to market research to help fine-tune the sales strategy and to support thought leadership projects.
What do you like most about working for AXA IM?
The AXA IM multi-expert model and my current role in the Clients & Markets team enable me constantly to develop my knowledge of the asset management industry, across all the asset classes.
I enjoy working in a multicultural and international environment. My experience at AXA IM in both London and Paris has allowed me to interact with a number of stakeholders worldwide.
