AXA's new stand alone multi-manager investment company is to be called Architas.
The name Architas reflects the vision of the business, with its approach to unbiased and guided architecture, and an architect's focus on the precision thinking and design of the multi-manager funds, according to AXA.
Architas will be launched in late summer 2008 and aims to use technological innovation to restructure the traditional multi-manager value chain.
Richard Philbin has already been named as CIO of the company with Nicolas Moreau as chairman, Mike Kellard chief executive officer and Ian Colquhoun in the role of MD.IFAonline
