Standard Life has restructured its top tier management team, with Paul Matthews taking additional responsibility for the firm's European operations.
Matthews (pictured) has been made chief executive UK and Europe and will lead the UK, German and Irish domestic business. He was previously chief executive of the UK business.
Nathan Parnaby, currently chief executive Standard Life International, will take up the role of chief executive of Standard Life Asia and Emerging Markets.
Sandy Begbie has been named as group operations officer.
David Nish, chief executive said: "Over the past two and a half years we have made significant progress in transforming the performance of Standard Life.
"As we move forward, we must make sure that we continue to evolve and have the right organisational structures in place. The changes we're announcing today will help us as we continue to seek to maximise the value of our international assets.
"There are exceptional opportunities in Asia and these changes ensure we're in the best possible position to take advantage of them. By combining our UK and European businesses, we are even better placed to capture new growth opportunities and synergies across the business as a whole."
