Troy Thompson

SVP and Chief Actuary

Troy Thompson joined Legal & General America in 2014, and now serves as Senior Vice President and Chief Actuary. A mathematics graduate with honors from The University of Texas, Troy is a Fellow in the Society of Actuaries. He served as LGA's Vice President of Product Management prior to being appointed Chief Actuary in October of 2015. Troy is a director on the boards of Banner Life Insurance Company and William Penn Life Insurance Company of New York.

Prior to joining LGA, Troy was with USAA, in San Antonio Texas, where he was first the leader of life and investment company operations and then a leader in an enterprise transformation initiative. This initiative aided the shift from a product line centric organization to a shared distribution, multiproduct solutions orientation. As senior VP of fixed life products, universal life products and term life products at Genworth Financial, Troy led the development of term and UL portfolios resulting in over $200 million in annual sales, $300 million in after-tax income, and annual growth rates as high as 70 percent. In doing so, Troy also artfully managed capital with structures that funded noneconomic AG38 and XXX reserves, including the industry's first securitization. He and his wife Kelley and their three children live in Urbana, MD.
