Welcome to the latest APAC edition of Business Chief.
Technology continues to steer the world of financial services and insurance, and global leader AXA is no exception. Dale Benton caught up with AXA Life Japan’s COO Hervé Le Hen for our November cover story – with the company serving 2.37mn customers and 2,200 corporate clients, it continues to leverage technology in transforming the customer experience.
“The defining factor of our ambition is to be better at helping our customers by providing greater power to them in order for them to live a better life,” Hervé explains.

This month, we’ve also looked at the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, which is fast becoming a gateway for exports. We’ve also brought you a list of the 10 wealthiest business people in Asia – but how did they make their fortunes?
