“I think that AXA found the right balance to grow as a multinational while keeping a start-up spirit. There’s a difference between talking about the future and acting for it. We’re constantly ahead of the challenges, anticipating and moving very quickly to enter new markets ahead of competitors. I remember 10 years ago when ‘Data Centre’ was not an established asset class, and one that nobody really believed in at the beginning. But I decided to investigate this sector and finance a small US company. This company is now a worldwide leader of the data center sector. I really felt I’d contributed to the future of our society. There’s a strong entrepreneurial culture at AXA, it’s in our DNA. For example, we recently launched a partnership with a sustainable construction company with the ambition to become a leader to become a leader in the wood construction field. And, before Covid, we had already planned to launch a Life Sciences platform to invest in the future of healthcare. I genuinely feel like this is not something very common and I’m proud of being part of a company where innovation is not just a slogan. I’m actually empowered to move the world forwards.”

“Being empowered to design my day the way it works best for me means I feel trusted. I can work when I’m most productive, take breaks when I need them, and create time for the things I love. By being able to work from home, I save 2 hours of commuting – and as an early riser, I really like that it means I can get a workout and meditate before I’ve even started my day. But flexible working only works if it’s two-way. It relies on integrity. So as a team, we have to show a great deal of respect for one another. When we agree or commit to deliver something, we make sure we deliver it; and we always make room for everyone’s own diverse commitments and needs. The best thing about having an open working atmosphere is that I feel able speak up on matters that are important to me. It’s what inspired me to use some of my new free time to set up a Business Resource Group called RISE UK with colleagues, focusing on underrepresented race and ethnic minorities. It makes me extremely proud to be a part of a company that truly cares about people.”
