The asset management unit of global insurer AXA has appointed Chris Price as head of insurance solutions in the UK.
In his new role at AXA Investment Managers, Price will be responsible for providing investment recommendations and developing customised solutions for UK insurance companies.
Based in London, Price will report to Mathilde Sauvé, head of institutional solutions at AXA IM.
“Managing insurance assets is deep rooted at AXA IM; I look forward to leveraging this expertise and experience and to helping accelerate the current momentum in the UK market,” Price said.
Price, who boasts 23 years of industry experience, joins AXA from Deutsche Bank where he served as director of insurance asset management and head of industry solutions in the UK.
He was also a financial controller at Brit Insurance, finance director at Markel
Syndicate Management and St. Paul Syndicate.
Sauvé described Price as a “valuable” addition to the insurance team.
“The UK insurance market is an important, yet differentiated segment of the global insurance market so it is vital to have someone based in London dedicated to working with UK based clients,” he said.
