AXA University Asia Pacific Campus opens in SG

AXA has officially opened the AXA University Asia Pacific Campus in Singapore, the first in the Japan Asia-Pacific region. The Campus is aimed to be AXA’s regional hub of learning and development for Japan and Asia-Pacific employees and agents.

Offering technical, organisational, leadership, and cultural programs, the training facility is intended to significantly contribute to the professionalism, excellence, and development of AXA’s managers and partners in the Japan Asia-Pacific region. Risk management, compliance, underwriting, claims management, and financial advice and planning are also part of the curriculum.

Henri de Castries, chairman of AXA’s Management Board, said, "The establishment of the campus is important to AXA’s ambition of becoming the preferred company in the Japan Asia-Pacific region. Investing in people development is key to develop a culture of excellence and offer the best service to our clients."

The Campus, a 1920’s Heritage Building named "Kinloss House," is owned by the Singapore Government and occupies the entire 2400 sqm building set on 19,000 sqm land. Not losing its historical character, the building has been renovated to fit AXA's purposes and now houses modern education facilities. The Campus will host over 5,000 days of business training per year to AXA employees and partners from and beyond the Japan Asia-Pacific region.

Ong Chong Tee, Deputy Managing Director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, said, "As a key international financial centre, it is important for Singapore to continue to build a highly skilled and professional talent pool. AXA’s establishment of AXA University Asia Pacific Campus here is a major initiative that will add to other manpower development and training efforts for the financial sector in Singapore, as well as for the rest of Asia."

AXA has over 35,000 employees and 45,000 tied distributors engaged in financial protection across Asia-Pacific markets. They support clients, both individuals and businesses, by providing products and services to meet their needs, including insurance, personal protection, savings, and estate planning.
