Axa Investment Managers is combining its Axa Framlington, Equity Convictions and Talents teams under a single brand, Axa Framlington, a move it says will clarify its offering and product proposition globally.

Dominique Carrel-Billiard, chief executive of Axa IM (pictured), says: ‘Thanks to this initiative, our equity offering is now positioned under two clear brands – our quantitative equity brand, Axa Rosenberg, and our judgmental offering, embodied by the newly integrated Axa Framlington brand. This will contribute to further strengthen our multi-expert model, which allows Axa IM to offer robustness, diversification and investment agility to our clients, all of which have proved key in the current environment.’
 
Axa IM will build on the synergies and shared investment philosophies that exist between the three franchises. It says cross-fertilisation of ideas across the teams will further leverage their strengths, while fund managers will retain the specialisation and complete ownership of their individual portfolios. The new structure is fully integrated into the Axa IM multi-expert model and will benefit from its risk management and global distribution capabilities.
 
Stéphane Prunet, global head of eEquities for Axa IM, says: ‘By bringing together our judgmental equity specialist expertises, we will deepen our collective investment insights and facilitate the development of innovative strategies. This is essential in order to help our clients adapt to the unusual challenges and opportunities of current markets. By developing such a stimulating environment and culture, I am convinced we will further attract and retain the best equity specialists in the market.’
 
Investment teams will remain based in Paris and London and will be organised by investment practices, based on a range of core, thematic and diversified equity strategies. Eventually, the entire Axa World Funds Judgmental Equity range will be available under the name of Axa WF Framlington.
 
Robert Kyprianou, head of Axa Framlington London teams, adds: ‘Axa Framlington is an established equity brand in the UK, synonymous with high quality fund management. By placing all its judgmental equity expertises under one single brand, Axa Investment Managers is providing clarity and a more definite identity for its judgmental equity offering in the global market place.’
