We remain committed to a disciplined risk management strategy and understand its vital importance in driving our ability to grow our business, optimise capital and return value for shareholders.”
 
Sarfatti has more than 15 years of experience working in financial services, life insurance, asset management and retail banking. Prior to joining AXA Equitable Life, he served as a partner with global management consulting firm, Oliver Wyman, in its North American Insurance Practice.
