Axa CEO Discusses the Acquisition of XL and His Vision for the Company in July Best’s Review

OLDWICK, N.J.--()--In July, Best's Review’s annual Leaders Issue features an interview with Axa CEO Thomas Buberl, who reshaped the Paris-based insurer from a life/savings company to a property/casualty insurer with the acquisition of XL, while simultaneously reinventing himself.

Also in this issue:

  • A Perfect Storm reports on what’s fueling the record-high merger and acquisition activity in the broker sector and how it will impact the industry, with enhanced services for insurers and potentially higher premiums for insureds.
  • The annual Top Global Insurance Brokers ranking shows how recent mergers and acquisitions have transformed the insurance market landscape, with a new lineup in the top five companies and a debut in the top 20, based on 2018 total revenue.
  • Standing the Test of Timelists property/casualty and life/health insurers that have maintained a Best’s Financial Strength Rating of A or higher for at least 50 years and at least 75 years. A 120-year-old fire and casualty insurer joins the 75-year list.
