Mark Wilson, Group Chief Executive Officer, said:
“Progress is in line with our expectations and we remain focused on delivering cash flow plus growth. In the first nine months of 2013 our key measure of growth, value of new business, increased by 14%. We had strong performances from France and our growth markets of Turkey, Poland and Asia. Conversely, value of new business remains depressed in our turnaround businesses of Italy and Spain, and this is being addressed.
“Capital generation in the period was stable at £1.3 billion and our economic capital surplus now stands at £8 billion. We continue to make satisfactory progress on cost reduction, with operating expenses 10% below the 2011 baseline.
“Aviva remains in the early stages of turnaround. Whilst we have resolved a key issue in the disposal of our US business and have made progress in a number of areas, there remains much work to be done.”
