Core investments

We offer a wide range of investment strategies, ranging from fixed income, equities, multi-asset to alternatives, which deliver sustainable growth through the ever evolving investment cycle.

Our approach

Since 1994, we've actively managed traditional core investments for our clients with a focus on long-term results. The fundamental belief that investing can be both financially and socially rewarding is why responsible investing has been at the core of our business since the start .

Broad range of strategies to suit a range of clients

Whether you are looking to generate income, preserve and grow capital, or offset the impact of inflation, we have an extensive range of traditional core investment strategies including fixed income, equities and multi asset capabilities. We also have an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) platform, which  aims to leverage our key strengths, primarily within active management and responsible investing strategies.

Leading responsible investor

We are one of the global leaders in responsible investing, and have built on our fundamentally orientated research and data-led investment process, by becoming over 85% fully ESG-integrated[axaim:fn:1:Souce: AXA IM's data as of end of December 2021]. We believe that ESG considerations give investors a better understanding of both future earnings growth potential, and credit risks.

25+ years' experience

Today, we draw on decades of asset management experience, backed by macroeconomic insights and in-depth company analysis, to help our clients reach their goals.

Fixed Income

Backed by research; we look at macroeconomic trends and perform in-depth company credit analysis. We offer a comprehensive range of strategies spanning the whole spectrum of the fixed income universe including money market, sovereign and inflation, emerging markets, investment grade credit, buy and maintain and high yield.


Our equity investment team is fundamentally driven, active in approach, and manages a range of qualitative and quantitative solutions. As well as fully embedding risk controls, our strategies also integrate a range of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) insights, which we believe helps to deliver sustainable long-term value.


Our fund managers combine their judgement-based convictions with in-depth quantitative analysis and a multi-tiered approach to risk to help investors reach their goals. Our investment teams’ expertise spans the whole asset class spectrum and they have the freedom to adjust to financial markets as they evolve.

Exchange Traded Fund activities

The Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) activities complements our existing range of strategies. We believe these first active ETF strategies showcase the best of AXA IM Equity: a blend of qualitative and quantitative insights, offering diversified exposure to the selected themes wrapped in a transparent and easily traded format.


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 Hans Stoter, Global Head of AXA IM Core, explains how collective action is key to support the transition towards a more sustainable world.
