Qatarlyst offers to access, approach and manage risk better, thus enriching the locally available expertise which will ultimately benefit the market. A main area of concentration for AXA will be the Property & Casualty segment (large risks, construction, marine cover etc). This will also, substantially boost AXA's retail portfolio by further increasing service and product excellence, which is crucial as a pillar in our strategy to raise awareness of insurance in the region and increase our presence across other insurance lines.
