Responsible Investing

Discover how to invest for a sustainable world

The world is changing. Responsible investors are changing with it.

Working together to create a better world

Our clients increasingly see Responsible Investing as both a way to align their investments with their values and fundamental to achieving long-term financial goals. We aim to help our clients invest sustainably through a comprehensive and innovative range of ESG integrated funds and strategies where ESG is embedded at the heart of the investment process.

Going even further, the AXA IM ACT range is designed to enable our clients to act on issues such as climate change and social inequality through investment decisions driven by ESG themes or by seeking out measurable, positive impact.

Putting ESG at the heart of our investment approach

More than 79% of AXA IM CORE funds and strategies within AXA IM Core fall under Articles 8 and 9 of the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR*).

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are embedded into our investment processes across our equity, fixed income and multi asset, meaning they meet the most demanding and stringent of the EU regulatory disclosures for sustainable investment funds.

    *The classification of the products under SFDR may be subject to adjustments and amendments, since SFDR has come into force recently only and certain aspects of SFDR may be subject to new and/or different interpretations than those existing as at the time of writing. As part of the ongoing assessment and current process of classifying its financial products under SFDR, AXA IM reserves the right, in accordance with and within the limits of applicable regulations and of the products' legal documentation, to amend the classification of the products from time to time to reflect changes in market practice, its own interpretations, SFDR-related laws or regulations or currently-applicable delegated regulations, communications from national or European authorities or court decisions clarifying SFDR interpretations. Investors are reminded that they should not base their investment decisions on the information presented under SFDR only.

    The ESG data used in the investment process are based on ESG methodologies which rely in part on third party data, and in some cases are internally developed. They are subjective and may change over time. Despite several initiatives, the lack of harmonized definitions can make ESG criteria heterogeneous. As such, the different investment strategies that use ESG criteria and ESG reporting are difficult to compare with each other. Strategies that incorporate ESG criteria and those that incorporate sustainable development criteria may use ESG data that appear similar, but which should be distinguished because their calculation method may be different.
