Royal London Appoints Two Seniors

Royal London, the leading mutual in life, pensions, and investments in the UK, has made strategic appointments in its protection business. Fiona Wynn has been named head of protection proposition, while Mark Preston joins as service delivery manager overseeing large cases. These appointments align with the company's expansion plans, particularly in the segments of high net worth and business protection.

Bringing a wealth of experience from Legal and General's retail protection division, Fiona Wynn assumes responsibility for developing end-to-end propositions and engaging with customers. Her background includes extensive involvement in reinsurance, contributing to her expertise in proposition development and customer interaction.

Mark Preston, previously involved in Aegon UK's individual protection business, which will transition to Royal London later this year, joins as service delivery manager. With a strong foundation as a technical underwriter and operational manager, Mark's expertise lies in medical and financial underwriting. His knowledge has been instrumental in crafting market-leading underwriting propositions.

These appointments signal Royal London's commitment to bolstering its support for advisers. Fiona and Mark will play pivotal roles in advancing the mutual's overall proposition, with a particular focus on refining its high net worth offering. Their combined expertise and experience will contribute to Royal London's continued growth and innovation in the protection business.

By tapping into Fiona's proficiency in proposition development and Mark's specialized knowledge in underwriting, Royal London aims to elevate its service standards and strengthen its competitive edge in the protection market. These strategic appointments underscore the mutual's dedication to enhancing its offerings and delivering value to its clients and advisers alike.
