Aegon customer innovation director Gordon Greig is leaving the insurer to join Royal London, Money Marketing can reveal.

An Aegon spokesman says Greig will be leaving after six years at the firm, but the date of his departure has not yet been confirmed.

He will become proposition delivery and performance director for intermediary pensions and protection at Royal London.

A Royal London spokeswoman says: “Gordon will be working closely with our proposition design and technology teams to ensure propositions are delivered and brought to market as effectively as possible.‎”

In previous Aegon roles Greig was proposition development director, platform director and head of individual marketing.

Prior to that he was head of savings and investment at Scottish Widows and investment director at Prudential.

Greig also sits on Aegon’s independent governance committee, a new requirement for all contract-based pension providers.

India Election Update

What a difference six months makes. Speaking in September last year, we had warned of ‘excessive pessimism’ afflicting the market’s perception of India. Since then, responsible central bank policy from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), alongside improving global growth, has meant that India’s macro environment is strengthening quickly. The current account deficit has shrunk, inflation is falling and the government has embarked on a heavy dose of much needed fiscal consolidation. As a result, the rupee has been one of the strongest global currencies this year while the market has touched all-time highs, rallying by more than 20 per cent (GBP) since September. This begs the question: are we now in a period of ‘irrational exuberance’? Not yet.

  1. Royal London have been one of the more efficient pension companies whereas AEGON has been one of the worst. I hope Aegons worst features are not going to be exported to Royal London.
