FPI Names New Singapore Managing Director

A new MD is taking the helm of FPI's operations in Singapore.

Friends Provident International, part of the UK-based Aviva group of financial organisations, has appointed Andrew Waddell as managing director for Singapore, subject to local regulatory clearance.

Chris Gill, formerly the MD in Singapore, is leaving the group for family reasons and will be returning to the UK, FPI said in a statement yesterday.

Waddell was previously principal and executive director at Lahinch Partners. Prior to that, he co-led the establishment of AMP Advice, following the merger between AMP and AXA Australia. Based in Singapore, Waddell will oversee the FPI business in the local market.

"I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Chris for his contributions over the past 18 years. Starting out in the UK, Chris has been instrumental in extending our international footprint and establishing our strong presence across Hong Kong and Singapore,” said Adrian Emery, chief executive of FPI.

FPI provides life assurance and investment products in Asia, the Middle East and other selected markets. The firm has offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates and the Isle of Man, and more than 500 staff worldwide.
