AXA is a life insurance company that originated in Paris, France in 1817. The company was created through a series of mergers from several insurance companies including one of the oldest insurance companies in France, the Mutuelle ACL. After several years, a new structure called Ancienne Mutuelle Group was formed and was then referred to as the future AXA Group later on. French businessman Claude Bébéar (now honorary chairman of AXA) became the CEO of the Ancienne Mutuelle Group in 1975. In July 1985, AXA became the group’s new corporate name.

As one of the leading French global investment, retirement, and insurance groups, it has been known to protect its customers and their relatives from any risk by helping them manage their savings and assets.

Today, the AXA Group has been serving over 100 million clients in 56 countries worldwide, providing services in three major business areas: property-casualty insurance, life and savings, and asset management.
