Real Assets

Our size, experience and structure enable us to offer clients a 360° view of real asset investing. We invest in both equity and debt, across different real asset classes, geographies and via private and listed instruments.

Structured Finance

With a history of innovation and a focus on in depth credit analysis and fundamental research, we originate opportunities across the non traditional credit spectrum to provide clients with opportunities for sourcing, diversification and spread pick-up. Our expertise includes private equity impact investing, leveraged loans and private debt, securitised assets including mortgages, bank capital transactions and insurance-linked securities.


We invest globally in liquid equities, interest rate and currency instruments, taking a quantitative approach to get exposure to a diversified set of premia strategies, which are sources of performance that can be harvested systematically. Through premia selection, continuous research and combination, our strategy deploys a liquid diversified approach seeking to offer investors consistent risk-adjusted returns that have low correlation to traditional asset classes.


What is our role in the fight against climate change?

Climate change is a complex topic. That is why we gave our interns the opportunity to question our senior leaders on our commitment to tackling climate change. In this video Isabelle Scemama, Global Head of AXA IM Alts, explains how we are fast-tracking some of our climate targets with a 2025 objective.
