Who are we ?


We are a global asset manager overseeing €30.1bn on behalf of clients across Europe and Asia as at 30th June 2023.

Our story began in 2008. We launched as a specialist investment manager within the AXA Group with the goal to combine some of the best fund managers from around the world into diversified investment solutions. It’s this multi-manager approach, which enables us to partner with ‘best-in-class’ fund managers across a range of asset classes, investing in geographies around the world, and distributing these investments through AXA in many countries.

As an active investor, we manage investments internationally on behalf of institutional and retail clients. We strive to cut through investment complexity, so you don’t have to.

Choosing investments can be a daunting experience. That’s why, at Architas, we’ve simplified the process by offering a range of investment solutions to meet the varying needs of today’s investors. At every stage, our aim is to focus on delivering returns for clients and controlling the risks they are exposed to. Whether it’s achieving growth, generating an income or preserving wealth, we want to help our clients fulfil their investment aims.
