AXA Investment Managers’ multi-premia approach aims to generate alpha by taking advantage of price anomalies.
Axa, BNP Paribas, Deutsche AM and HSBC helped account for strong growth in the second quartile of AsianInvestor's ranking of the biggest fund houses by Asia-Pacific assets.
The fund house aims to launch a Ucits China bond fund, set up a wholly foreign-owned entity in Shanghai, register for mainland bond market access and gain a QDLP licence. And that's not all.
The French fund house has brought in Pierre-Emmanuel Juillard to build the new platform with a mandate to hire a 10-strong team.
UBS WM's Asia head of global family office exits; Axa IM names Japan chairman; Bank of Singapore appoints head of advisory PM; Taiwan FSC replaces chairman; Invesco shuffles Mid East heads; Pictet AM poaches from Eaton Vance; Aberdeen creates insurance role; and more.
Axa Investment Managers has added an equity-focused trader in Hong Kong to fill out its regional multi-asset dealing hub in anticipation of rising volumes in Asia.
