Fast Market Research recommends "Aviva Plc - Company Profile Report" from Timetric, now available


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/08/2013 -- Aviva Plc recorded GBP22.7 billion of gross written premiums from its global insurance operations in 2012. In the same year the company reported GBP1.89 billion in global operating profits, down 10% compared to 2011. The UK represents the majority of its worldwide business, accounting for half its premium income and 70% of its profits. Growth in Aviva's life and non-life gross written premiums in the UK has mirrored macroeconomic developments over the last five years, posting sharp drops during the 2008-2009 recession and a muted recovery since 2010. A broad recovery in GDP growth, consumer confidence and the housing market is expected to materialize from the end of 2013, providing impetus for insurance demand. A shareholder revolt in 2012 prompted the current chairman, John McFarlane, to implement an extensive restructuring plan. Over the last two years, Aviva has shed its unprofitable life insurance businesses in Eastern Europe, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and the US, and has also sold its stakes in Delta Lloyd and Aseval.
