Stephen Gay to be Director of Life Savings and Protection at the Association of British Insurers

The ABI has appointed Stephen Gay as its new Director of Life, Savings and Protection. Mr Gay will lead the team responsible for the ABI's work to encourage people to save and protect themselves as well as driving forward the industry's support for the new pensions reform agenda.


Stephen Gay has over twenty five years' experience working in the life and pensions market. He is currently Director General at the Association for Independent Financial Advisors and as part of this role is also Director General of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries and the Association of Finance Brokers. Prior to this he was Director of Distribution Development at Aviva UK Life.


Otto Thoresen, Director General of the ABI said:


"We are delighted that someone of Stephen's undoubted calibre will be joining us to drive forward the ABI's work on pensions, saving and protection. This is an absolutely crucial time for the industry and we have a unique opportunity to change the UK's low saving habit through the introduction of automatic enrolment. If we get this right we could change the way people save and protect their futures for good and I know Stephen is absolutely focused on helping the industry rise to this challenge."


Stephen Gay, Director of Life, Savings and Protection ABI said:


"I am very pleased to be joining the ABI to lead what I know is a very committed, good team. I hope that my experience and expertise will bring some new ideas to help us move forward our work with our members to help people save - a challenge which is only going to increase in importance over the coming years."
