Roger Edwards to leave Royal London

Royal London managing director of UK protection Roger Edwards

Royal London managing director of UK protection Roger Edwards is leaving the company.

Edwards has been with Royal London for 12 years, and is leaving as part of a company restructure.

He joined Scottish Provident in 1993 following the company’s acquisition of Prolific Life and Pensions. Scot Prov was then acquired by Abbey National, and Edwards left to form a business plan with six others backed by Royal London to create what is now the Bright Grey brand.

Royal London later acquired Scot Prov in 2008.

Edwards was proposition director for Bright Grey and Scot Prov until July last year, when he became managing director of UK protection as part of a shake-up of Royal London’s intermediary leadership team.

Royal London intermediary division chief executive Hugh McKee says: “We are starting to restructure the division to help deliver greater efficiency while continuing to provide strong expertise in our chosen markets.

“Roger Edwards has decided not to be considered for a role in the new structure and will leave the company in due course to pursue new challenges. I would like to thank Roger for his very significant contribution throughout his twelve years with Royal London and to wish him well in the future.
“Roger will continue in his current role in the meantime and will support a smooth transition to the new structure of the intermediary division.”

Bonds going bust? Not so fast….

In recent months bond bears have been reinvigorated, and market commentary suggesting “the end of the bond (bull) market is near” has become commonplace. We think these comments are premature. Explaining the global government bond sell-off October has seen renewed pressure on global government bonds, initially provoked by a Bloomberg article suggesting that the ECB […]
