The Paris-based global insurer which was recently awarded the 1st insurance brand worldwide for the 9th consecutive year has announced recently that they are establishing a Shared Services Centre that will see the leading insurance company at the forefront of industry innovation as they continue to embark on their transformation journey.
AXA is set to launch two hubs – one in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and another in Manila, Philippines – which are envisioned to enable the company’s future-ready business strategy in Asia.
“Our vision is to enable business transformation by leveraging on technology to achieve our goals in Asia,” says Marc Blottiere, AXA Asia Regional COO. “The Shared Services Centres are a testament to our long-term commitment towards investing in the region.”
The new Centre will become the IT hub for AXA in Asia, and later to Japan and when required, globally across the AXA Group. They will also later stand as a central hub of actuarial expertise, serving as a centre of excellence in technical subjects including actuarial product pricing and valuation; providing guidance to its Asia entities on improvements to processes and methodologies.
Greater Kuala Lumpur was chosen as one of the located Centre for its potential robust growth which AXA envisions will improve its agility and cost efficiency. As an Asia IT hub, AXA will be creating opportunities for Malaysians, to work on high profile projects across different Asian countries and on the latest technology platforms for IT Infrastructure Services which includes End-User Computing, Network Management, and Server Management. The centre will also be the central hub of actuarial expertise, serving as centre of excellence in technical subjects including actuarial product pricing and valuation.
With that, AXA is set to generate an approximate 200 jobs across different technologies and capabilities in Greater Kuala Lumpur – a move that will boost employment and empower career growth for the Malaysian workforce while contributing to the thriving BPO landscape in Malaysia.
“We are honoured to be part of AXA’s journey in the establishment of the new centre for AXA in Asia. This hub exemplifies the ability and quality of our world class talents that are readily available in embracing the new era of Industry 4.0. AXA’s Asia hub in Greater KL is also a testament to the long list of Multinationals that believes in the unlimited value that the city offers. I congratulate AXA on this auspicious launch and look forward to the continuous partnership between AXA and InvestKL, with the support of MDeC,” said Datuk Seri Michael Yam, Chairman of InvestKL.
