    Pat on the back for a cracking job well done on the re-platforming. Er…..

  3. Less £450,000 income tax. Ouch!

  4. I am glad to hear someone is doing a good job at Aviva. Maybe he can lend a hand on the phone lines answering adviser queries.
    Their service – pretty much across all departments in our experience – is appalling!

  5. Cut and pasted from a Rathbones blog – NOT written about Aviva, but it could have been…

    “Many businesses are forgetting a cardinal rule: a business has more stakeholders than the staff and shareholders. It’s called the customer, a key asset. In retail, distribution, financial services and others automation is being adopted to cut costs (usually humans) to improve margins and create efficiencies for the company. Not enough consideration is made of the customer experience.

    When assessing new investments (or those we already hold) we try to understand the customer experience and how it’s trending. Only when you do this can you analyse the competitive landscape and potential threats. It doesn’t matter whether a firm is selling to government, other businesses or direct to the consumer. Treat the customer badly and short-term margin gains are quickly lost as revenues take a nosedive.”

  6. What’s happening with the old with profits fund from friends life, many stayed in this fund while a lot of people took the £600 to move to the new with profits fund. Those who remained in the old fund have had two payment since the change in 2009 and are, should be due for another as millions of£££ surplus in the old fund as we approach another five year pay out time???
