Andrea Woodhouse, a 57-year-old lawyer at Aviva, wishes someone had sat her down in her twenties and told her to put as much money into her pension as she possibly could. “When I started out in my career I didn’t stop to think about how I would fund my retirement,” says Ms Woodhouse. “If I’d known more about the benefits of saving into a pension — the fact that most employers match employee contributions — I would have started saving into a pension earlier,” says Ms Woodhouse, who finds herself in the difficult position of having to pay for her youngest child’s rent at university but has also had to take out a loan to build an annexe on the side of her home for her elderly parents to live in.
Some of London's top hedge funds and asset managers are among those that have been targeted by rogue internet operators who clone their names and websites in an attempt to part unsuspecting investors from their cash. The high number of warnings from leading regulator the FCA -- roughly one a day so far this year -- underscores the concern in the sector over sham internet sites. Although few individuals are known to have fallen for the fakes so far, Winton and Algebris, backed by two of Europe's most prominent investors and targeted in recent weeks, are among the highest profile names to be hit as the scammers grow bolder.
LONDON/ZURICH, Feb 7 (Reuters) - Tidjane Thiam is unlikely to quietly retire after his abrupt exit as chief executive of Credit Suisse, some of those who have worked with him predict. "A bit like walking on a tightrope", is how Thiam described leadership in 2012. Leaving the country after the 1999 coup, he became a partner at consultancy McKinsey, before entering insurance at Aviva and then moving on to Prudential, becoming the FTSE 100's first black CEO in 2009.
LONDON/HONG KONG, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Many global companies from hotels and airlines to industrial houses are expected to have to foot the bill for disruptions caused by a new coronavirus in China, with epidemics usually excluded from insurance cover, experts said. With 132 deaths in China and new cases being reported around the world, companies are set to face billions of dollars in losses linked to events and travel cancellations and closure of businesses, they said. The virus originated in the city of Wuhan, forcing airlines to cancel flights and companies including Facebook and HSBC to suspend travel to China.
Italy's UBI is set to extend an insurance partnership with Cattolica for a limited time, sources familiar with the matter said, delaying longer-term decisions while it waits to see how consolidation among mid-sized banks plays out. Italy's fifth-largest bank is seen playing a leading role in a new round of M&A between second-tier lenders as they grapple with negative rates, a stagnating economy and a digital revolution in the industry. UBI had been planning to reorganise its insurance operations, valued at 1 billion euros, under a new three-year plan it will unveil next month and had been looking for a new partner.
Britain's regulators should have a formal role after Brexit to keep the financial sector globally competitive and less prone to "gold-plating" international norms, an industry think tank said on Thursday. The International Regulatory Strategy Group (IRSG) said new thinking and targeted reforms were required after Britain leaves the European Union on Jan. 31.
Let's talk about the popular Aviva plc (LON:AV.). The company's shares saw a double-digit share price rise of over 10...
Shares in Aviva slid on Wednesday after the British insurer announced it would reorganise into five divisions and sell its stake in its Hong Kong business, falling short of investor expectations for a broader change in strategy. Analysts had speculated Aviva might announce that it would sell smaller European operations such as France or Italy to focus on the UK, or offload books of life insurance closed to new customers. Aviva is folding Aviva Investors, its fund management arm, into a broader investments, savings and retirement division.
British life and general insurer Aviva Plc will keep its operations in Singapore and China, it said on Monday, two days ahead of an expected strategy update and following speculation of a sale of the Singapore business. Aviva began a review of its Asia business earlier this year under new CEO Maurice Tulloch. "Following a thorough review of options for the Singapore business, including seeking offers ... Aviva has concluded that the best value for shareholders will be achieved by retaining the business," the company said.
The Bank of England warned on Tuesday it will crack down on insurers that are overly optimistic about how much capital they need to cover growing risks from the United States and elsewhere. Gareth Truran, acting director for insurance supervision at the Bank's Prudential Regulation Authority, said the risk of reserving "deficiencies" was increasing in a sector that may be "optimistic" about its outlook. "For Lloyd's managing agents, we will continue to work closely with Lloyd's, taking into account in particular the work of Lloyd's Performance Management Directorate in approving and monitoring syndicate business plans," Truran said.
