AMP Financial Services has enhanced its Group Risk team with three acting appointments in wealth protection products.
AMP appointed Victoria Simpson as acting Group Risk product strategy manager, Jenny Vaitsas as acting Group Risk product manager and Chris Taylor as acting Group Insurance business relationship manager (BRM).
Victoria Simpson’s appointment follows five years at AMP as an actuary within product manufacturing, most recently within Pricing and Value Analytics. Prior to joining AMP, Victoria worked in actuarial finance at Canada Life Insurance in Dublin.

"In her new role, Victoria will be focused on developing and implementing the strategic and operational plans for AMP’s Group Risk product set," Paff said.
Vaitsas will joins AMP from MLC, where she held the position of service manager for the Master Key Business Super Insurance team. Before this, Jenny held several senior operations positions at CommInsure.
"Jenny brings to AMP a wealth of experience in risk and corporate superannuation products, having worked in the life insurance industry for almost 13 years. Jenny will play a key role in strengthening AMP’s Group Insurance proposition," Paff added.
Taylor’s appointment comes after Chris joined AMP in 2009 as Group Life product manager. He previously held various roles in Group Risk Claims at PrefSure Life and Tower.
Paff said that Chris will be primarily focused on life insurance and salary continuance and will also be responsible for managing strategic relationships within the business.
