A commitment to transparency based on a strict respect for professional ethics, formalized in AXA's code of professional ethics.
AXA has a Group Compliance and Ethics Code (the “Code”) that applies to all of its worldwide employees and subsidiaries. All senior officers across the Group are required to formally certify their compliance with the Code on an annual basis.
At AXA, people are encouraged to report any suspicion of inappropriate, unethical or illegal behaviour. They can raise a concern either locally or directly to the Group, through the dedicated whistleblowing process. The Group whistleblowing hotline (speak-up@AXA.com) is monitored by the Global Head of Investigations who is independent from executive management.
