Responsible Investment


AXA IM is fully committed to becoming a leader in Responsible Investment (RI) and supporting sustainable financial markets. We believe it is a forward-looking investment strategy which can deliver healthy, long-term, risk-adjusted returns across all asset classes.

We believe that RI can help deliver superior risk-adjusted returns for our clients over the long term. That is why we embed global ESG research across asset classes and provide investors the opportunity to select the level of ESG integration that best fits their needs and objectives. It's how we redefine investment solutions.

Our RI strategy is based on two dimensions:

  • Progressively integrating non-financial criteria in all our investment processes
  • Offering a range of specialised RI products

Our Responsible Investment team conducts ESG research that informs investment decision-making and active stewardship practices in order to increase our clients' long-term financial returns and ESG performance - such as reduced CO2 emissions or improved human capital management.

Responsible Investment is one component of our commitment to corporate responsibility.
