Royal London today announces the appointment of Daniel Cazeaux as Group Chief Financial Officer, subject to regulatory approval. Dan will report to the Group Chief Executive, Barry O’Dwyer, and will take up the role in early June.

Dan joins from KPMG where he is currently an Audit Partner. In this role he has led global client teams to deliver audit services to UK and global insurance companies, including advising on finance change programmes and transactions.

Dan has spent the last 20 years in financial services including executive secondment roles in finance functions of large UK insurers and has deep rooted specialist and commercial sector expertise.

Dan joins Royal London at a time when the business is looking to grow and build on its success, having announced robust trading results in 2019 despite the political and economic uncertainty. 

Barry O’Dwyer, Group Chief Executive of Royal London, said:

“With his wealth of experience in the sector, Dan will be a strong addition to the Royal London Board and Executive team.  He joins at a time when the value of Royal London’s financial resilience and capital strength has never been more important.  Once we get past Covid-19, I look forward to working with Dan to build on that strength, creating a modern mutual that offers customers consistently great service, performance and value.”

Daniel Cazeaux, incoming Group Chief Financial Officer, said:

“I am delighted to be joining Royal London and being part of an organisation that, as a mutual, is owned by its customers. I am looking forward to working with colleagues across the Group and contributing to the business’s aim of strengthening its position in the market.”
