Aegon UK has created two roles in its risk and finance division in a bid to improve returns and de-risk its balance sheet.
Current chief financial officer Mark Laidlaw has been appointed chief risk officer and has been tasked with leading and developing the company's risk and capital management strategy.
Bill Robertson, currently chief actuary at Aegon N.V, has been given the role of finance director. Both men will report to Aegon CEO Otto Thoresen.
"It is clear Aegon UK needs to improve return on capital in line with Aegon's global approach, following the impact of falls in the financial markets," Thoresen says.
"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."
