MetLife, Inc. - Analyst/Investor Day

Stocks in this article: MET

So as you know, Chris Townsend just joined us in the beginning of August. Prior to that, he spent 21 years at Chartist, half of those -- half of that time, he was in the Asia-Pacific region. And most recently, was the Chief Executive officer of Asia Pacific for Chartist. So it's my pleasure to introduce our President of Asia, Chris Townsend.

Christopher Townsend

Thank you, John, and good afternoon. So let me first of all add my personal welcome to all of you to Tokyo, and for those of you who have traveled a great distance, thank you. We really do appreciate it. Now before I pass over to the team, my job really is just to spend a few minutes talking broadly about Asia, and explaining how this part of the world fits into the overall enterprise strategy that Steve shared with you at Investor Day back in May. And as you'll note very soon, a number of the slides I'm going to use are identical to the ones Steve used, and that's no coincidence, it's intentional. So I want to reiterate the fact that I'm not looking to make wholesale changes to the business, I'm looking to execute on the agreed company strategy, which has already been hopefully, clearly articulated through to you.

So I don't have anything with MetLife with the 6 weeks now. I would suggest that whilst I've been doing my own due diligence on being on a listing source for the most of that time, I really do believe that we are coming into this in a position of strength and with a great platform to further grow our business profitably in the region. So my goal is to make sure we're executing on that agreed company strategy, and to continue all the good work, particularly in Japan, we've done at integrating the Alico business to MetLife Group from AIG Group to MetLife.
