“2009 has proved to be a challenging year for AXA Investment Managers (AXA IM) as well as the whole asset management industry. Despite the challenges we have faced, we have continued to focus on our mission: which is to support our clients in accomplishing their objectives, by helping them define their investment plans and managing their assets.
Whilst we have been affected by the situation of the financial markets in 2009, and indeed in previous years, it has demonstrated the advantages of our multi-expert business model, which combines the strengths of shared resources with the reactivity and entrepreneurial mindset of dedicated local teams.
We remain committed to following our multi-expert concept, as we are convinced that this strategic orientation is the right one, and our dedication to this approach is demonstrated through the use of our new brand signature “AXA Investment Managers / redefining investment solutions”. This reflects our desire to offer our clients a transparent approach which inspires confidence and trust; the best-in-class risk management to optimise their portfolios; and strengthen our investment platforms, and the underlying performance of our products.”
