Who are we ?


We are a global asset manager overseeing €32.5bn on behalf of clients across Europe and Asia as at 30th June 2024.

As AXA IM's specialist investment multi-manager, we combine products from some of the best fund managers worldwide to create diversified investment solutions. This approach means we partner with 'best-in-class' fund managers investing across a range of asset classes. In many countries, our multi-manager products are sold through the AXA network.

Choosing investments can be a daunting experience. That’s why, at AXA IM Select, we’ve simplified the process by offering a range of investment solutions to meet the varying needs of today’s investors. At every stage, our aim is to focus on delivering returns for clients and controlling the risks they are exposed to. Whether it’s achieving growth, generating an income or preserving wealth, we want to help our clients fulfil their investment aims.
