AXA Posts Decent Q1; We Increase FVE and Believe Shares Are Undervalued

Company Profile

Business Description

AXA is one of the largest multiline insurance companies that we cover within European insurance. Since the company's takeover of XL Group, AXA has started to morph from a predominantly life and savings business with geographical operations primarily focused on its home market of France, as well as Europe, into a company that has a heavier weighting to nonlife insurance, specifically larger commercial corporates. While insuring businesses is not something new to this enterprise, the XL Group acquisition did move the commercial portfolio from a small and medium enterprise orientation, to capabilities that can handle much larger entities. Geographically, this has also meant a shift to North American exposure. This has tilted the company's profit reliance away from financial markets.
