From November 7 to 9, prospective employers and applicants gathered at the Careers in Africa summit in New York. AXA was present along with seven other large international groups. Careers in Africa is an initiative created by the Global Career Company recruitment firm to connect companies operating in emerging African markets directly to the brightest African talent, whether already established in Africa or working or studying abroad.
For AXA, drawing from this pool of talent is an important step toward strengthening the group's existing commitments in Africa. AXA is currently the leading insurer in Senegal, the third largest in Cameroon and Côte d'Ivoire, and the fourth largest insurer in Gabon. Africa is one of the last remaining large regions where insurance penetration is still low. As in other fast-growing markets, the AXA Group wishes to pursue its policy of helping people choose the right insurance and managing their risk.
