Dividends

AXA’s dividend distribution policy is based on consolidated adjusted earnings less interest charges on undated debt. In the final quarter of 2015, AXA announced a payout target range of about 45% to 55% of that earnings base.

The Board of Directors is responsible for making a dividend recommendation for approval at the annual shareholders’ meeting. When determining the recommended dividend for any given year, AXA strives to reconcile the needs of prudent capital management, reinvestment of previous results to support its business development, and, of course, the dividend’s attractiveness to the shareholders.
