Our statement on Ukraine

At AXA IM we stand in solidarity with all victims of this aggression. Alongside the terrible impact on people’s lives, there is also an economic impact, and our experts from across the business will continue to share their views on this. Read more below about our position on the current conflict in Ukraine. If you have any questions, you should contact your usual sales team contact.

Acting with conviction

Since the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, we fully enforced all international sanctions. Already having a limited exposure to Russia, AXA IM decided to divest from Russian sovereign and government-related debt when possible and to stop all new investments in assets issued by Russian or Belarussian entities and/or located in Russia or Belarus. Moreover, AXA IM has prohibited any new subscriptions in AXA IM funds and mandates by Russian and Belarussian investors who do not hold a temporary or permanent residence permit in a EU member state. AXA IM continues to closely monitor the situation and reacts accordingly to protect the interests of our clients.

Supporting the children of Ukraine in partnership with UNICEF

More than 7.5 million children could be affected by the current war. AXA IM supports UNICEF’s humanitarian efforts in the country and region, and employees’ donations will be matched by AXA IM. This is in addition to the €6 million the AXA Group has already pledged to help the Ukrainian civilian populations and refugees.

UNICEF has been present in Ukraine for 25 years, providing assistance in the areas of health, education and child protection.
