Sun Life has appointed Kim Yeoh as chief financial officer for Asia, effective July 1. Yeoh will be responsible for shaping and executing the insurer’s financial strategy in the region to ensure sustainable stakeholder value and achieve its growth ambitions. The company currently supports more than 11.5 million clients in Asia, offering life, health and wealth management solutions.
Yeoh joined Sun Life Asia in 2017 as vice president of asset liability management in the region and later became chief actuary for Asia. She began her career in Canada with Clarica (later acquired by Sun Life) and has previously held senior financial executive positions at Prudential, Manulife, and Aegon with experience in Asian, European and North American markets.
She is a fellow of the Society of Actuaries, the Canadian Institute of Actuaries and the Actuarial Society of Hong Kong as well as a chartered financial analyst charterholder. Yeoh takes on her new role after Karim Gilani was appointed to lead international hubs, which includes Sun Life’s businesses in Hong Kong, Singapore and Bermuda.
