Christophe Ferrand, the chief administration officer of Aegon Asset Management, has died after a fire at his home in Scotland.
The 44-year-old was injured after a fire started on the first floor of his home in Dunmore Park, Airth, early Tuesday morning. He was taken to hospital along with his wife and two children but later died of his injuries.
A statement issued by Aegon says: “He was an inspirational figure for those that had the pleasure to work with him and he will be sorely missed by all his colleagues at Aegon Asset Management and across the Aegon group.”
Ferrand had been with the company for 11 years and recently assumed responsibility for legal and finance in the UK in addition to his existing duties. Prior to this, he worked for Morgan Stanley London and Ernst & Young in Paris.
