Aegon UK reshuffles senior risk and finance roles

Aegon UK has appointed Mark Laidlaw as chief risk officer and Bill Robertson as finance director as part of a shake-up of its risk and finance operations.

The move will see two separate functions created within the firm’s UK risk and finance operations, each with local management board level responsibility.

Laidlaw (pictured) is currently Aegon UK chief financial officer, leading the firm’s finance, actuarial and risk functions. He will now focus specifically on risk and capital management. Robertson joins from Aegon NV where he was chief actuary. He previously held a number of senior finance and actuarial roles within Aegon UK.
Aegon UK chief executive Otto Thoresen says: “It is clear that Aegon UK needs to improve return on capital in line with Aegon’s global approach, following the impact of falls in the financial markets. Aegon’s strategy is to improve returns and to de-risk our balance sheet. Creating a new focus on risk and capital management will enable us to achieve these dual goals. With the new management focus, Aegon UK is well placed for the future.”
