Aviva Singlife appoints new CIO

| 20 Apr 2021

Aviva Singlife Holdings, the holding company established following the merger of Aviva Singapore and Singapore Life (Singlife), has appointed Kim Rosenkilde as Group Chief Investment Officer with effect from 8 April 2021.

An industry veteran with over 30 years in financial markets, Mr Rosenkilde’s appointment comes as Aviva Singlife Holdings strengthens its new leadership team and brings the best of its investment capabilities from Aviva Singapore and Singlife together under one brand.

Mr Rosenkilde had acted as an advisor 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 Holdings’ 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.

He will report to Aviva Singlife Holdings deputy chairman and interim group CEO Walter de Oude 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.

Prior to joining Aviva Singlife Holdings, Mr Rosenkilde held senior executive roles with Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch, ABN AMRO Bank and other financial institutions in London, New York, Tokyo and Shanghai. He now calls Singapore home having lived there for the past 12 years with his family.
