Olivier Paquier, the Global Head of ETF Sales at AXA Investment Managers (AXA IM), joins Margareta Hricova and Deboah Fuhr on ETF TV to share insights on AXA IM’s ETF strategy.

AXA IM entered the ETF industry approximately 18 months ago. With a rich history of over 25 years in portfolio management, AXA IM views ETFs as a logical progression given their expertise in three key areas:

  1. Fixed Income: AXA IM has a strong foundation in fixed income investments.
  2. Active Management: They firmly believe in active management strategies.
  3. ESG Focus: As an insurance company, AXA IM integrates Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations into their business globally.

 AXA IM has strategically focused on Paris Aligned Benchmarks (PAB) within their ETF offerings. Here are the key points:

  1. PAB:
    • AXA IM actively utilizes PAB, which helps clients decarbonize their portfolios by a minimum of 7% annually.
    • These benchmarks align with the Paris Agreement, a global initiative signed by numerous countries in 2015 to combat climate change.
    • AXA IM incorporates PAB into both active and passive investment strategies available through their ETFs.
    • Additionally, AXA IM has expanded its ETF range by launching thematic ETFs based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
    • These thematic ETFs focus on areas such as biodiversity and a climate strategy, which includes responsible investment exclusions and impact filters.
    • AXA IM’s approach combines qualitative and quantitative methods to enhance exposure purity and overall performance.

In summary, AXA IM aims to be a leading UCITS ETF provider by 2026 by leveraging their expertise in fixed income, active management, and ESG considerations
