AXA recently announces that it has completed the acquisition of XL Group Ltd, a leading global Property & Casualty commercial lines insurer and reinsurer with strong presence in North America, Lloyd’s, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. The completion of the transaction follows the fulfillment of customary closing conditions, including approval by XL Group shareholders and obtention of all necessary regulatory approvals.

“Today, as Greg Hendrick steps up to lead AXA XL as its CEO and joins AXA Group’s management committee, I would like to personally welcome him and all XL Catlin colleagues to the AXA family. With the enthusiasm and shared vision of AXA and XL Catlin teams, extensive preparatory work has already been conducted to ensure a smooth integration of our businesses within the AXA Group”, said Thomas Buberl, Chief Executive Officer of AXA.
