We recognise the importance of corporate governance and are committed to meeting the highest industry standards. Our transparent and independent decision-making processes help to create a responsible and flexible organisation that inspires the trust of our clients, business partners and shareholders.
Meet our Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is appointed by shareholders and is ultimately responsible for AXA IM. It approves the strategy, oversees management's activities and approves major investments, e.g. acquisitions.
Board members are representatives of AXA IM's shareholders, executive management and independent non-executive directors. Permanent invitees include representatives from the Works Council, AXA IM's Chief Operating Officer and General Secretary/Chief Financial Officer. The secretary of the Board is AXA IM's General Counsel.
Meetings are held at least five times a year.
Meet our Management Board
This is the decision-making body responsible for the global strategic management of the company. It covers a broad spectrum of topics, enabling the body to define and implement AXA IM's strategy, review performance, and address key risk, audit, compliance, human resources and business topics. It usually meets three times a month.
The members of AXA IM's Management Board do not have any business involvement other than within AXA IM's companies, and work under the supervision and guidance of the AXA IM SA Board of Directors.
Meet our Remuneration Committee
The Remuneration Committee meets at least three times a year. It reviews the company’s remuneration policy, the remuneration of the top management, as well as bonus and other compensation schemes. It is also in charge of reviewing the selection of candidates to fill-in director position within the AXA IM Group subsidiaries prior to their appointment.
In addition to its members, meetings are attended by the Executive Chairman, the Global Head of HR and an AXA Group HR representative.
Meet our Audit and Risk Committee

On behalf of the full board, it oversees the internal control and risk management processes in the business and reviews the financial statements.
Attendees also include the Company's auditors, PwC, some representative of AXA IM (including Global COO & Global Head of Risk and Controls) and a representative of AXA Group's Audit department.
Meetings are held four times per year.
