AXA under the stewardship of Thomas Buberl believes that the world is entering a new golden age of insurance and aims to be creative to invent new services for our customers, develop new insurance models, support new forms of mobility, adapt to healthcare developments, and more. While accelerating innovation, AXA is rebalancing business mix, focusing on three priority growth segments: protection, property & casualty commercial lines, and health.

Buberl believes: ‘’Our purpose is to empower our customers through greater peace of mind and the assurance that their lives can be safer, healthier and full of opportunities. We must build the trust and understanding that create a strong relationship, as the bedrock of our insurance business.”
