Rosenkilde, said: “I am incredibly proud to be joining the combined entity of Aviva Singapore and Singlife and its fantastic team at such a unique time in history.

“I approach this task with a great sense of responsibility, humility, and awareness of the role the Aviva Singlife brand will play as a homegrown insurer that is well-embedded in the fabric of Singapore’s society.”

Deputy Chairman and Interim Group Chief Executive Officer Walter de Oude added: “Aviva Singlife Holdings is combining the best of tech with sound financial advice to create unique offerings for Singapore and Southeast Asia.

“Beneath these offerings come rigorous investment and risk management capabilities which ensure we continue to support the financial journeys of customers who have entrusted their wealth with us.

“It is a privilege to have Kim’s continued expertise and leadership in this process as we unite the two entities under one trusted homegrown brand.”
