Mike Holliday-Williams to take reins of Aegon UK next year
Edinburgh-based pensions provider Aegon UK will be headed up by Mike Holliday-Williams from next year, the firm has announced.
The current chief executive, Adrian Grace, will retire from the position on 31 March 2020, The Scotsman reports.
Alex Wynaendts, chief executive of Aegon UK’s Dutch parent group, said: “Mike’s appointment signals Aegon’s continuing commitment to build on the strong foundation of our UK business.
“Mike brings extensive experience in the financial industry and a strong track record in focusing on customer solutions. I look forward to working with him.
“We would like to thank Adrian for having successfully modernised, transformed and repositioned our UK business.
“Under his leadership, our UK business has grown from £40 billion of unit-linked pensions in 2009, to today where we oversee £175bn of pension and investment assets.
“We have repositioned Aegon to be the leader in the market of investment trading platforms and the company is now well positioned for further growth. We wish Adrian well in his deserved retirement.”
Mr Holliday-Williams added: “I look forward to working with advisers to develop new solutions to enhance their relationships with their clients.”
