Manulife has appointed Aravind Srinivas (pictured above) as chief risk officer, Asia and head of global product and insurance risk management.

In this role, Srinivas will be responsible for maintaining Manulife's global risk management framework across Asia, while overseeing Manulife’s global product and insurance risk practice.

Srinivas will jointly report to Anil Wadhwani, president and CEO, Asia, and Rahim Hirji, global chief risk officer. He will be a member of the executive committee for Asia and the global risk leadership team.

Most recently, Srinivas was managing director for Munich Re’s life, health, and high net worth businesses in Singapore, where he was in charge of business development, operations, actuarial governance, and underwriting. He was with Munich Re for more than 10 years and was also senior pricing actuary for its life business in Asia, the Indian subcontinent, Middle East, and Africa. Prior to Munich Re, he was head of pricing at Suncorp Life in Australia.

“We are incredibly pleased to welcome Aravind to the Manulife family,” Wadhwani said. “His depth of knowledge, experience, and expertise will further strengthen Manulife’s risk management and drive innovation throughout the company. As a leading global insurer, our robust risk culture has been fundamental to ensuring we deliver on our commitments to the millions of customers who entrust their health, wealth, and protection needs to us.”
