Just Retirement appoints chief risk officer

Alex Duncan joins from Old Mutual

Just Retirement, the specialist UK life assurance group, has appointed Alex Duncan as chief risk officer.

Duncan joins from Old Mutual where he spent eight years in a number of positions including head of UK acquisitions, head of corporate finance and development and, for the last four years, director of finance – capital.

He has also had spells at Mercantile and General Reinsurance before moving to KPMG, Swiss Re New Markets and Lehman Brothers.

Just Retirement said the appointment will free up Shayne Deighton, currently risk & actuarial director, to focus on "wider business developments".

Duncan takes up his new role with Just Retirement in September, subject to regulatory approval.
