Cofunds poaches Aviva head Matt Benson


Legal & General-owned platform Cofunds has appointed Aviva head of customer experience Matt Benson as head of operations.

Cofunds says Benson will head up the administration teams across both its retail and institutional businesses.

Cofunds chief executive Chris Last says: “Matt has the mix of experience, enthusiasm and customer focus to drive through the service developments we have planned for the platform.”

Benson says: “I will be making sure that my team does not lose any of that drive to do the very best by our clients as the business grows further.”

L&G acquired the 75 per cent of Cofunds it did not already own in March for £131m in a deal which valued the business at £175m.
