What Kind Of Investor Owns Most Of Aviva plc (LON:AV.)?

AV AV

Large companies usually have institutions as shareholders, and we usually see insiders owning shares in smaller companies. Let's take a closer look to see what the different types of shareholder can tell us about AV.. View our latest analysis for Aviva. What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About Aviva? This implies the analysts working for those institutions have looked at the stock and they like it. But just like anyone else, they could be wrong. When multiple institutions own a stock, there's always a risk that they are in a 'crowded trade'. When such a trade goes wrong, multiple parties may compete to sell stock fast. Our most recent data indicates that insiders own less than 1% of Aviva plc. As it is a large company, we'd only expect insiders to own a small percentage of it. But it's worth noting that they own UK£12m worth of shares.

Aviva high-flyer Andy Briggs quits after losing out in chief race

AV AV

One of Britain’s top insurance bosses, Aviva’s UK chief Andy Briggs, is stepping down with a near-£3 million maximum pay package shortly after missing out on the top job at the company. Briggs, who joined Aviva in 2015 after the £5.6 billion takeover of Friends Life, lost out to Aviva chief Maurice Tulloch last month following a closely fought contest to replace Mark Wilson, prompting questions about his future. Chief risk officer Angela Darlington will take over from Briggs as caretaker manager while Tulloch reviews the structure of the UK business. At just 53, Briggs is likely to look for another big CEO role given his experience running Friends Life, a former FTSE 100 company, and Aviva UK, which is Aviva’s biggest division.

Aviva's UK insurance boss to step down, management review to begin

AV AV

Aviva's UK insurance boss to step down, management review to begin. LONDON, April 24 (Reuters) - British insurer Aviva said on Wednesday that Andy Briggs, head of its UK insurance business, was stepping down from the company, just weeks after missing out on its top job to newly installed Chief Executive Maurice Tulloch. He joined the Board of Aviva in April 2015 to lead its enlarged UK Life business following the takeover of Friends Life where he served as Group Chief Executive. Separately, Aviva said it would broaden its senior leadership team with the appointment of Colm Holmes, CEO of Aviva Canada and Global Corporate & Speciality, and Patrick Dixneuf, who becomes CEO of Aviva's European businesses. As a result of the changes, Aviva will not seek to appoint a new CEO International, the role vacated by Tulloch before he became Group CEO.

The Aviva share price is rising. Is it time to buy?

AV AV

One of the biggest worries for a dividend investor is their favourite companies are going to run short of cash and have to rein in annual payments. That’s been weighing on my mind ever since I bought Aviva (LSE: AV) shares in late 2015. That same update spoke of “a record year for cash remittances” and an increase in “our solvency cover ratio to 204%,” while reporting a 7% rise in operating earnings per share, of which just under half was “due to higher profits from our major businesses.”. That all sounds good. But if we look back to the days before the financial crisis, Aviva sounded as though it was on top of its dividend payments and the annual cash was secure. But the crash came, Aviva’s balance sheet was overstretched, and the dividend was slashed. Since then, we’ve seen changes in management and a significantly more conservative approach to the firm’s balance sheet and cash management, which I think has been illustrated by the 2018 results.

Is Aviva’s 7% dividend yield safe?

AV AV

The FTSE 100’s Aviva (LSE: AV) makes its money from life and general insurance along with asset management products and services. And in last month’s full-year report, chairman Sir Adrian Montague said the company had a year of “steady progress” in 2018 growing its profits and cash remittances. The solvency cover ratio increased to 204%, and I know that if any firm talks about its solvency ratios, it’s a safe bet you’ll find bucket-loads of debt on the balance sheet. I tend to lump Aviva into a pile with the London-listed banks and label the whole lot as being in the debt-laden ‘wider financial sector’. However, the directors pushed up the full-year dividend by 9% to extend a long period of dividend-raising as you can see from this table:. Montague said in the report that earnings growth has been achieved by means of higher profits from the company’s major businesses, from the programme of ordinary share buy-backs, from debt-reduction and from “a higher net contribution from longevity and assumption changes.”.
