With AXA Investment Managers, one of the pioneers in the listed real estate market, we have shown a long-term commitment to this asset class since 1970 and are committed to benefitting our private bank clients with genuine investment value from the real estate space.
Real estate assets continue to hold sway among Asian investors, even amid worries over interest rate hikes and stymied Chinese interest due to the country’s capital controls. Regional gatekeepers singled out AXA Investment Managers as the go-to provider for exposure to the asset class.

Having constructed the first real estate fund to be listed in France in 1970, AXA Investment Managers deserves credit for its ability to transpose to Asian markets the global experience it has accumulated from decades worth of fundamental real estate securities selection, illustrated by its stable track record across multiple market cycles.

Highlighted by the region’s gatekeepers and ranking amongst the asset manager’s top products in the sector is the AXA World Funds Framlington Europe Real Estate Securities strategy, which seeks to realise long-term capital growth by investing primarily in listed Europe-domiciled real estate companies or those that principally conduct their business in Europe.

The pedigree of its real estate strategies are backed by the asset manager’s thorough understanding of relative value in the sector, its focus on optimising the management of cycles, its agility and flexibility in asset allocation, as well as its insights into balance sheet capital structures.

Boosting AXA Investment Managers’ distribution of real estate assets in Asia is a highly experienced and committed team backed by sound research capabilities and in-depth knowledge of the dynamics of the European real estate and real estate debt markets.

Positioning the Asian private banking segment as a core focus for their business strategies in the region, AXA Investment Managers has been named by industry gatekeepers as Asian Private Banker’s Best Fund Provider – Real Estate Asset.
