Why Architas

We help investors meet their different investment goals through our expertise in multi-manager investing. This means that instead of focusing on one type of investment, they have access to lots of other single-focus underlying funds run by specialist fund managers. In other words, a fully diversified single investment solution.

Combining independence with strength We are 100% owned by the AXA group, but operate on a fully independent basis, giving us the best of both worlds. We operate like a small company, with an entrepreneurial spirit and agility to move quickly to take advantage of opportunities or try something new, but with the ability to leverage the scale and influence of the Group.

A specialist multi-managerOur sole focus is on providing multi-manager products and services to our clients. Rather than picking individual stocks, we pick the stock pickers. Our dedicated team of investment professionals carry out a rigorous four-stage investment process to ensure that only what we believe to be the best managers make it into our portfolios.

Focused on responsible investing From ensuring ESG criteria are fully integrated into our investment process to launching dedicated portfolios, we believe that investing responsibly is vital and will benefit our clients and the wider community over the long term. At the heart of it, aligned with the AXA Group, our purpose is to act for human progress by protecting what matters.

A growing global footprintWe have a global presence with offices across Europe and Asia, operating in over ten countries and currently managing or advising €30.1 billion on behalf of our clients as at 30th June 2023. Having our people on the ground helps us to design products and services centred around differing client needs.

Why multi-management?

Put simply, multi-manager investing combines the talents of many fund managers into one portfolio, allowing investors easy access to what we believe to be the best funds available. There are several advantages to this investment approach.

Best in class As a multi-manager, we are able to partner with those we believe to be the best managers available from across the investment universe. We then combine these managers into a single investment solution for our clients, ensuring they benefit from having a specialist manage each aspect of their portfolio.

Active management We actively manage our portfolios, adjusting allocations to take advantage of opportunities we see in the market and responding to changing conditions. This allows us to effectively manage the risk for our clients and provide a smoother return over time.

Diversification Our portfolios are diversified across a wide range of sectors, geographies and in some cases asset classes. Each investment will behave differently in varying market conditions, so by spreading investments in this way we are able to build more resilient portfolios.
