FSA’s Ken Hogg joins RGA as UK chief actuary and financial officer

RGA, the global life reinsurer, has announced the appointment of Ken Hogg to the position of chief atuary and financial officer for its UK operations, with effect from 1 June 2011.

Mr Hogg joins from the Financial Services Authority where he led the FSA’s work on insurance sector issues and represented the FSA in its dealings with external stakeholders including trade associations, professional bodies and international regulators. During his career in the life insurance industry Mr Hogg has held a wide range of financial reporting, strategy and business development roles with companies such as AEGON, AIG Life and MGM Advantage.

David Gulland, managing director for RGA UK, said, "I am thrilled that Ken will be joining us. He brings a wealth of technical knowledge, industry experience and global contacts to RGA. The life insurance market is evolving rapidly due to Solvency II, the Retail Distribution Review, the changing welfare state, the change in tax regime and the introduction of gender-neutral pricing. Ken’s attributes will help both us and our clients make the most of the opportunities these changes will bring, with the ultimate aim of helping households and businesses having in place adequate protection against life-changing events".

Ken Hogg said, "I am looking forward to returning to the industry and helping RGA and their clients manage their way through the challenges ahead. Personally, I am looking forward to working with the dynamic RGA team, both in the UK and globally".
