He brings over 30 years of financial industry experience to the firm, which is strengthening its leadership team after the merger of insurers Aviva and Singapore Life.
Aviva Singlife has appointed veteran Kim Rosenkilde as group chief investment officer and will join the firm’s executive committee with effect from April 8, 2021, according to an announcement on Tuesday.
Rosenkilde, based in Singapore for the past 12 years, has held senior executive roles with Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch, ABN AMRO Bank and other financial institutions, in London, New York, Tokyo and Shanghai. 
Coordinated Investments
In his new role, Rosenkilde will coordinate investments across the two insurers and will be seconded to the Asset Liability Committees of Singlife and Aviva. He will report to Walter de Oude, deputy chairman and interim group chief executive officer at Aviva Singlife.
Rosenkilde 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, the announcement said.
Aviva and Singlife completed the merger in November 2020 in a deal valued at S$3.2 billion ($2.4 billion). The newly merged business is one of the largest insurers in Southeast Asia, with a focus on mobile savings and protection solutions.
