AXA IM announces changes in its Structured Finance teams

  • 23 July 2019

Jean-Philippe Levilain, who is currently Head of Loans & Private Debt within AXA IM Structured Finance, will take on a new role outside of AXA IM and leave the company effective September 15, 2019.

“I would like to thank Jean-Philippe for his strong contribution over the last 15 years and especially for the development of the Loans franchise notably in the US. Since 2012, the US business has grown to $7 billion of assets under management. I wish him the very best for the future.”, commented Deborah Shire, Head of Structured Finance.

The Loans & Private Debt portfolio managers, who remain unchanged, will report to Alexandre Martin-Min, AXA IM Structured Finance CIO, who already has oversight of all portfolio management activities. The investment process and philosophy will remain unchanged. Structuring and Business development are also key success factors for the Loans & Private Debt activities. They remain unchanged under the leadership of Christophe Fritsch who is also co-Head of Structured and Securitized assets. 

Alexandre Martin-Min and Christophe Fritsch will continue to report to Deborah Shire. They have all been part of AXA IM Structured Finance since its creation in the early 2000s.

“I have every confidence in the experienced and talented teams in place to pursue the proven strategy implemented by Structured Finance, continue to provide our clients with the same quality of service and further develop the platform going forward. We are committed to this activity which is central in our growth strategy and will continue to add resources to support the development of the platform”, concluded Deborah Shire.

AXA IM Structured Finance is a global alternative credit platform managing €43 billion of assets which has demonstrated a solid track record across several credit cycles. The Loans & Private Debt platform is a global player totalling €12 billion of assets under management, including $7 billion in the US, presenting a diversified product mix made of 14 CLOs and more than 20 mutual funds or mandates.
