AXA Investment Managers, a Paris-based asset management firm, has appointed Jeroen Bos as the Global Head of AXA IM Equity.
This strategic hire marks the company’s commitment to strengthen its focus on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing.
AXA IM specialises in asset management, providing a range of investment solutions and strategies to clients globally. Its focus includes equities, fixed income, real estate, and other financial products designed to create long-term value.
Jeroen Bos is not new to the world of ESG investing. He previously served as the Global Head of Sustainable Investing at Credit Suisse Asset Management. Bos will spearhead AXA IM’s equity business, with a particular emphasis on thematic, SDG-aligned, and ESG-integrated investment strategies.
Before his tenure at Credit Suisse, Bos worked for over 13 years at NN IP, a Netherlands-based asset manager, where he held positions including Head of Equities & Responsible Investing. He led a team of approximately 45 portfolio managers, analysts, and data scientists who combined fundamental analysis, ESG, Impact/SDG, and Sustainability insights with data analytics to develop comprehensive investment solutions.
In his new role at AXA IM, Bos will focus on equity growth ambitions and improving the equity platform’s investment, commercial, and financial performance. Credit Suisse was recently acquired by UBS, while NN IP was acquired by Goldman Sachs in 2021.
Hans Stoter, Global Head of AXA IM Core, welcomed Bos, saying, “I am delighted to welcome Jeroen within AXA IM to steer our equity business. As we have strong ambitions to expand our equity franchise, particularly in Thematics, SDG-aligned and ESG integrated investment strategies, his breadth of knowledge of the equities markets and responsible investing will be instrumental to us.”
Jeroen Bos, in a social media post, expressed his enthusiasm, “I am really excited to be joining AXA Investment Managers as Global Head of Equities starting in November. Its commitment to sustainability and innovation as well as its strong suite of equity solutions provide a great basis to further accelerate its equity franchise and positively impact clients.”
