Aviva Singlife has appointed Kim Rosenkilde as group chief investment officer, effective April 08. He reports to Walter de Oude, deputy chairman and interim group chief executive officer.

The company announced that Rosenkilde’s appointment comes as Aviva Singlife Holdings strengthens its new leadership team following the merger of Aviva Singapore and Singlife.

Rosenkilde acted as an advisor to Singlife on its investment and risk management strategy throughout 2020. His appointment to the new entity will see him lead investment management activities and the integration process of Aviva Singapore and Singlife. This includes designing an appropriate refreshed investment risk appetite and managing the risks and opportunities that are supplemented by existing and new third-party managers.

Prior to joining Aviva Singlife, Rosenkilde held senior executive roles with Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch, ABN AMRO Bank and other financial institutions in London, New York, Tokyo and Shanghai.

“Aviva Singlife Holdings is combining the best of tech with sound financial advice to create unique offerings for Singapore and Southeast Asia,” said de Oude. “Beneath these offerings come rigorous investment and risk management capabilities which ensure we continue to support the financial journeys of customers who have entrusted their wealth with us. It is a privilege to have Kim’s continued expertise and leadership in this process as we unite the two entities under one trusted home-grown brand.”
