General risk profile

With its complete focus on its 2 core activities, AXA Bank Europe takes a very conservative stance on risk matters:
(a) Retail banking in Belgium, transforming  deposits into loans to retail customers and SME’s;
(b) Low-risk financial services to AXA Group, consisting mainly of repo and derivative intermediation on a back-to-back basis.

AXA Bank Europe is finalizing the sale of its Hungarian activities.

This transaction is the last step of the repositioning of AXA Bank Europe towards a retail bank with focus on the Belgian market. On top of this intrinsically prudent business model, ABE implements conservative risk management policies:

  • Its wholesale credit exposures are restricted to first class issuers and counterparties within a tight limit framework;
  • Its retail credit portfolio,  which mainly consists  of mortgages, shows a very low risk profile ;
  • Its market activities focus on hedging market risks emerging from its core businesses; its liquidity risk is managed within very conservative standards.

More risk-related information can be found in the AXA Bank Europe's 2015 Disclosure Report, which is prepared in accordance with Basel II Pillar III requirements.
