LONDON, May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Fineco today announced funds from AXA Investment Managers (AXA IM) are now available on its investing platform.
The addition of funds from the asset manager will further strengthen Fineco's ESG offering, and enable its growing customer base in the United Kingdom greater access to a range of sustainable investing products.
AXA IM, part of AXA Group, is a responsible asset manager, actively investing for the long-term to help its clients, its people and the world to prosper, with strategies ranging across equities, fixed income, multi-asset and alternatives. ESG is integrated into more than 90% of its core assets (equity, fixed income and multi-asset).
The latest announcement follows a string of sustainably-focussed fund additions to Fineco's online platform, with the introduction of funds from NinetyOne and Candriam announced already this year.
Paolo Di Grazia, deputy general manager, Fineco: "Responsible investing is becoming increasingly important to our customers, and this is why it is so important that we continue to partner with asset managers that are committed to driving environmental and social change through their investments. We know that the introduction of AXA IM will be highly welcomed by our customers, especially with the added benefit of Fineco's competitive and transparent prices."
John Stainsby, Head of Core Client Group UK, AXA Investment Managers, said: "We are delighted to offer funds from our UK range to Fineco's customer base, so they can tap into 20 years of our responsible investing experience. Half of all new funds launched in the UK now have some form of ESG built into the investment process. ESG is no longer an industry trend, it is the new normal, and a basic requirement for a growing number of investors."
