How we invest

Our multi-asset, multi-manager approach means we are free to explore investment know-how outside AXA, as well as within. Spanning a universe of thousands of funds globally, our meticulous selections are combined to create the finest blends.  

Architas investment decisions come with a human touch. Our ~25 strong investment team carries out exhaustive research to uncover investment opportunities. Each team member brings unique knowledge into play - spanning a broad range of business sectors, geographic regions and other specialisms. Last year, they held around 1,000 meetings with fund managers across the globe.

Our services vary, but they will include the following…
