Aviva Singlife Holdings, the holding company established following the merger of Aviva Singapore and Singapore Life, has appointed Kim Rosenkilde as group chief investment officer, with effect from April 8. His appointment comes as the merged group strengthens its new leadership team and brings the best of its investment capabilities from Aviva Singapore and Singlife together under one brand.
Rosenkilde, an industry veteran with over 30 years in financial markets, acted as an adviser to Singlife on its investment and risk management strategy throughout 2020. His appointment to the new entity builds on this effort as he leads Aviva Singlife’s investment management activities and integrates the processes 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.
Rosenkilde will report to Walter de Oude, deputy chairman and interim group chief executive officer at Aviva Singlife Holdings, and become a member of the group’s executive committee. He will coordinate investments across the two licensed insurers and will be seconded to the asset liability committees of Singlife and Aviva upon appointment.
