Lloyd’s names Eleanor Bucks as CIO

Bucks joins Lloyd’s from Legal and General where she was the chief operating officer of its alternative asset platform, Legal and General Capital

Lloyd’s has announced the appointment of Eleanor Bucks as chief investment officer. 

In this newly created role, Bucks will be based in London and will focus on the creation of the new Lloyd’s market investment platform, which will enable “greater scale and access to broader products” to ultimately “reduce cost and improve returns for the market”.

Bucks joins Lloyd’s from Legal and General where she was the chief operating officer of its alternative asset platform, Legal and General Capital.

She has 20 years of experience in insurance and finance, with Bucks also serving as a director of Legal and General’s single-family build-to-rent business.

Burkhard Keese, chief financial officer of Lloyd’s, said: “I’m thrilled that Eleanor will be joining Lloyd’s to build and lead the Lloyd’s Market Investment platform. Eleanor joins Lloyd’s at an exciting time as we create an investment platform that will significantly improve investment returns for the market. 

“With a strong track record of investing to support pensions and insurance in the UK, Bermuda and the US, she brings with her a valuable global perspective, which not only strengthens the existing Investments team at Lloyd’s but also adds to the diverse representation of Lloyd’s senior leadership team.”
