MetLife has announced that it is creating a regional sales team specifically for the Greater London area.
Ralitsa Nenkova is heading up the new team, having taken on the role of regional sales director, and further key appointments are expected.
Ms Nenkova joined the group in June 2008, initially covering sales and business relationships across East Anglia.
Commenting on developments, the life and pension provider’s UK sales director, Dave Ewens, says: “The creation of the London area on our sales map is a direct response to the high demand and growth we are experiencing.”
He adds: “We are committed to offering the best service to our IFA partners and, as a result, we are restructuring and will look to grow this new London team.”
MetLife’s UK operations saw rapid growth last year, with assets under management doubling to £2 billion by September 2011, from £1 billion at the end of November 2010.
The firm has recently been calling for innovation in the UK annuity market.
