As you may have seen, AXA Equitable Holdings, Inc. (AEH) began trading today on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol, EQH. AEH is comprised of our two well-established franchises, AXA Equitable Life and AllianceBernstein.
As a US listed company, we expect to benefit from enhanced strategic flexibility, visibility, and stronger growth prospects, driven in part by new opportunities to expand our product offerings in certain markets.
We want you to know, this does not change our focus on our core markets, products or distribution partners, or change the way we do business. We remain committed to the US life insurance, individual annuity, retirement plan, employee benefits, wealth management and asset management markets, and plan to continue to grow our distribution by investing in our third-party relationships.
Additionally, we remain committed to maintaining our financial strength — there is nothing more important than honoring our promises to our customers.
While we are excited about this historic milestone, we remain focused on running our day-to-day business and serving our partners and customers. It is also important to note that we are still in a quiet period and we will be communicating further after this has been lifted.
As always, we value your business and continued support.
Head of Life, Retirement and Wealth Management
