I think Amélie’s appointment at AXA France is a testament to her strong professional and personal qualities. I am very happy for her and would like to warmly thank her for her contribution to AXA IM’s business over the last five years. I am delighted to welcome Frédéric at AXA IM. Frédéric knows AXA well and had held several global HR roles within the Group and in other companies and industries.
