The chairman of AXA’s management board, Henri de Castries, said of the results: “2007 was another year of solid performance, with underlying earnings per share growth outpacing our Ambition 2012 target.
“The reported numbers reflect the combination of a strong organic growth in all our business lines, the successful integration of Winterthur and confirm that the strength of our balance sheet is not affected by the subprime crisis.”
