|A healthy spike this am. Bodes well for the days ahead.|
|Nearly 20 years ago I bought 2 pensions, both on identical terms with identical funds invested, 'market-related with-profits'. Both have beaten inflation, but my Aviva pension for 2016-7 will be 31% more than my Prudential pension. 'Nuff said?|
|Andrew and Steve - both interesting - I have a number of insurance trust funds and find their administration poor. Historically they have ripped off customers taking huge charges out of the premiums and in league with IFA's. Things have changed somewhat in recent years but they are still long winded, the majority poor fund managers and slow learners.
|Andrew, I also hold Aviva and am also an insurance customer - I have to say my experience is very different from yours, I've always managed to speak to someone quite quickly and they've been very helpful. Having said that I've never had to make a claim. But their prices are very competitive, and I'm not sure if you know, but as a shareholder you are entitled to discounts on insurance - have a look on their website. They seemed to take me at my word when I told them I held shares - I didn't have to provide any details!
|I'm long Aviva, but will get out as soon as it's financially worthwhile, because:
I have personal experience of Aviva as a motor insurer and also, through being an attorney for an Alzheimers sufferer, as an equity release provider. In addition, through my business, I have experience of them as a provider of life and pensions and other financial services. In all cases their service and attention to customers is dreadful. Getting through to anyone is a nightmare, and once through, having a meaningful and intelligent conversation is nigh on impossible. Either one is speaking with an automated robot or someone reading from a script that takes no or scant notice of what is said to them.
Any business is conducted at a snail's pace, and they have hoops and other paraphernalia through which one must jump or otherwise engage, before they will do anything at all.
The last business I had such experience with was the Halifax; and my most joyful remembrance of them is telling a 'I won't be spoken to like that' employee that they weren't too big to go bust ... which is just what they did about three months afterwards!!
So: if Aviva don't sharpen up how they deal with customers, personal and business, they will also not prosper for much longer; hence my desire to sell out asap.
Those who disagree with me, please buy the shares, and when the price has gone up sufficiently, I will gladly unload. So come on boys, buy, buy, pleeeese! :)|

"In November 2014, the Financial Conduct Authority removed the requirement in the Disclosure and Transparency Rules to publish quarterly interim management statements (IMS). After careful consideration, the Board has determined that Aviva should no longer provide IMS disclosures for 1Q and 3Q, with immediate effect."|
|7th May last year - can not find for this year.|
|Any idea if or when a quarterly update is coming out?|
|Right, that settles it. I was going to vote for Brexit, but now that Buywell3 is recommending an exit, I shall vote to stay in. Buywell3 is always wrong on everything.|
|Stability may well attract buyers in the coming months. Savings/pensions have to go somewhere. Closer to £5 would suit me well. ;)|
|The Buywell buy signal was spot on. I bought shortly before he predicted sub £4 (cum div) and now in profit after expenses plus a 14p dividend. :-)|
|Good day uppompeii
You never know in the current conditions. Any excuse to take the market up or down but that's nothing new. It just seems more blatant these days.|
|Yet a long while I hope my friend.|
|It does appear that it doesn't fancy £4 yet awhile.|
|This blokie 'buywell3' is complete rubbish at the investment game, isn't he?
He never gets anything right. Aviva sub 400p, was it?
Hee Hee! Whoosh...|
|We have had all the fall for long enough. I am happy with the current price, a good auction tonight, a small uptick today and 14p divi in the bag IMHO will be worth locking a few more away next week .|
|Heading to test the low at £4.|
|What's with the huge drop today?|
|This all links in to the fact that many of these Public Company bosses are massively over paid!
The likes of John McFarlane and Mark Wilson are deck-chair shufflers at best.
Look at the share price at Aviva - the shares are back where they traded when Wilson was firing existing management back in September 2013.
As for Mcfarlane - as well as having no impact at Aviva, just look at what the Barclay's share price has done since he became chairman in September 2014.
The problem is that the likes of Aviva (pension funds) are the major institutional shareholders. In that capacity, they could have a major impact on the disgusting levels of Director remuneration. They however, are on the same gravy train, and to do anything about it would be like turkeys voting for Christmas.
And so it continues, massively overrated custodians of plcs continue to receive extortionate pay increases for merely doing their job. All at the expense of the shareholder.
McFarlane, Wilson and their like should pack their Louis Vuitton bags and go back to where they came from- not paid for by the shareholders, but economy class!!|
|Despite the ex-div. and the weakness of financials this cos. performance in thefts two weeks has been dire, Mark Wilson has done much to improve the risk profile of this co. along with growth through acquisition, but the market treats this with disdain, frankly investors have seen little shareholder appreciation since Andrew Moss except a restored dividend!|
