Royal London Asset Management has named Hans Georgeson as its chief executive, replacing Andrew Carter who will retire in June from the helm of the £148bn asset manager.
Georgeson previously worked at Axa Group, where he spent 10 years as CEO of its Architas Asset Management business, which is responsible for overseeing £40bn of client assets across 12 countries in Europe and Asia. He stepped down from the position in January 2020.
Earlier in his career Georgeson held a number of senior executive roles at Barclays Wealth, where he was responsible for its UK and European retail investment business. He was previously an executive director at Gerrard Investment Management, and ran a retail trading business earlier in his career.
Barry O’Dwyer, CEO of Royal London Group, said: “With a proven track record of growing financial services businesses, we believe Hans’ experience and entrepreneurial insight will be hugely valuable in helping RLAM expand its capabilities for the benefit of investors and in meeting our ambitious long-term commercial objectives.”
