Rubenstein will also serve as chair of the investment committee when Alan Brown retires after more than 12 years' service, following the conclusion of the company's AGM in June.
Gienal was named as chief executive officer at AXA UK and Ireland in September 2018. Before that he was chief strategic officer for the AXA Group, having also worked at Zurich, Accenture and McKinsey & Company.
Rubenstein has over thirty years’ experience in pensions, insurance, asset management and investment banking and was chief executive of the Pension Protection Fund between 2009 and 2018. He is also a non executive director at esure Group and a trustee director and chair of the investment sub committee for the British Coal Staff Superannuation Scheme.
Julian Enoizi, Pool Re’s chief executive, said: “Our board members are vital as part of stimulating further innovative thinking within the organisation and the industry as we continue to meet the challenges of the evolving terrorism threat together as well as the emergence of other systemic risks.”
