Mark Zinkula has plans to retire as the CEO of Legal & General’s investment management arm on Aug. 31, 2019.
Zinkula was appointed CEO of the company in March 2011 and was appointed to the board in September 2012.
Prior to that, he was CEO of Legal & General Investment Management America (LGIMA) since 2008 and played an integral part in the establishment and successful expansion of LGIMA.
Prior to joining LGIMA, Zinkula was at Aegon Asset Management where he was global head of fixed income.
“Leading LGIM over the past several years, a period of significant transformation and growth, has been a real privilege,” said Zinkula. “We are well positioned for the future, and I believe next year will be the right time to step down. By giving notice now, we will have ample time to plan for my successor.”
Legal & General did not specify when a hiring process will begin, but will do so “in due course”.
