Axa Group (France)

Axa Group is one of the world's largest insurance, pension and investment groups, with around 103m customers worldwide. It is ranked by Interbrand as the world's most valuable insurance brand, and is the global #1 by both revenues and assets. (It lost the top spot in net written premiums in 2015). Axa traces its roots back to a group of regional French mutual insurance companies established in the mid 19th century. They merged in 1957 to form the current business. Still headquartered in France, it has operations around the globe, mostly trading as Axa, or in the US as AllianceBernstein. Acquisitions since 2000 have included MONY in the US and Winterthur of Switzerland. Group revenues for 2015 were €98.5bn. Life insurance & savings accounted for more than 60% of revenues, and France is its biggest market by far, followed by Germany and the US. Long-serving group CEO Henri de Castries plans to retire in 2016 and will be succeeded by Axa Germany leader Thomas Buberl.
