AXA IM to launch gender diversity equity fund

AXA Investment Management will launch a fund on 28 Febuary 2017 designed to capitalise on companies promoting gender diversity, the asset manager has announced.

The AXA World Funds Mix IN Perspectives fund aims to generate long term returns from firms demonstrating evidence of gender diversity while also creating a positive impact on society in regards to diversity and inclusion.

The new fund will be run by Julie Lamirel and will be managed based on analysis from the AXA IM Framlington equities and responsible investment teams.

The fund will take a bottom up approach to stock selection to ascertain the companies with the best fundamentals and gender diversity perspectives.
