M&G plc, a leading international saving and investment business, today announces the appointment of Matt Robinson as Managing Director of its International Life Insurance Business. 

In a newly-created role, Matt will oversee M&G’s life insurance branches in Ireland and Poland as well as being responsible for the development and growth of Future+, a family of global multi-asset funds delivering ‘smoothed’ outcomes, designed to replicate the success of M&G’s flagship PruFund range outside the UK.  

Matt joins M&G’s Life business, led by Clive Bolton. In addition to its international operations, the Life business is responsible for the management and development of M&G’s individual life products in the UK, including the company’s flagship PruFund range, as well as the 4.6 million customers of its heritage business. Through its corporate risk team, M&G re-entered the bulk purchase annuity market in September 2023 and is developing a range of derisking solutions for the corporate market.

 
 

Matt is a qualified actuary who brings a deep knowledge of the insurance market and leading large teams in different countries. He joins M&G from Embark, a pensions provider that is part of Lloyds Banking Group, where he was Managing Director. 

Prior to his role at Embark, Matt was a Non-Executive Director at Zurich Life & Pensions Ireland and spent over 20 years at Aviva, where he held a number of senior roles both in the UK and Ireland. During his time at Aviva, Matt led on a strategic review of the company’s presence in Ireland and the regulatory process for the acquisition of Friends First and its merger with Aviva Life Ireland.   

Clive Bolton, CEO M&G Life, said: “I am delighted to welcome Matt to M&G. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with him which will help us build on two of M&G’s key strategic priorities: growing our business outside the UK and further strengthening our partnership with leading global players. 

 

“He’s a great match for our plans to grow the international business and will be key to the development of new innovative solutions that will underpin our growth ambitions.” 

Matt Robinson, incoming Managing Director – International, said: “I am thrilled to be joining M&G at such an exciting time. I look forward to developing and growing its international life insurance business.  

“It will be a real privilege to work with the team to continue to deliver an excellent service to clients and drive forward the company’s international growth ambitions.”
