Annuities, Legal & General.

"Aaron's leadership and expertise have been instrumental in growing LGIMA's
Solutions business, and he has played a pivotal role in the success of the US
LDI business," said Mike Craston, CEO of LGIMA. "With his wealth of
experience, I know Aaron will be successful in leading the global business.
Our investment in our US team over recent years has enabled us to create a
well-resourced team with experienced LDI professionals. I am confident that
Aaron's promotion will further enhance the level of solutions and client
service that our clients expect and deserve."
