Respected industry figure is new Fidelity Life Director

Respected financial industry stalwart David Whyte has been appointed to the board of NZ life and investments company Fidelity Life Assurance. 

David has had a number of senior management and board roles in both New Zealand and Australia.  

David is well-known in the financial advisory area for his central role in the growth of two organisations, Sovereign Assurance and AIA (now AIG). He was key to the development and growth of Sovereign in its early days, as business development manager then GM Sales from 1990 to 1994. This period saw Sovereign develop a 1500-strong adviser distribution force from scratch.  

It was followed by eight years as General Manager of AIA Life New Zealand (now AIG), during which time AIA was the fastest-growing life office for organic  non-acquisition business for six successive years. In 2002 David became Managing Director of AIG Australia, a position he held for four years, and which saw AIG achieve significant growth and distribution expansion.  

David has extensive trans-Tasman governance experience. He has been a board member of the ISO and ISI in New Zealand,  AIG Life Australia, and was a member of IFSA Australia’s risk committee. He is currently on the board of the Pacific Insurance Conference, a position he has held for eleven years. 

Founded in 1973, Fidelity Life is the country’s largest 100% NZ-owned and managed life insurance and investments company.
