We help our customers plan for the good times and we look after them when bad stuff happens. Using technology and our expertise we try to prevent bad things from happening to our customers in the first place.  We take our responsibilities seriously.

Every year we pay our customers over £30 billion in claims and benefits.

We believe we have a clear strategic advantage: we are a "composite" insurer, which means we can provide customers with a wide range of insurance and savings products - from car, home and health insurance to pensions, investments and asset management.

We are the UK’s largest insurer and we also have a strong international presence across North America, Europe and South East Asia. We focus on markets where we can achieve scale, profitability and competitive advantage.  

Digital future

We want to be a 320 year old disruptor, benefitting from the strength of our past while leading the way in a digital age.

Aviva was born in an age of quills and parchment – over 320 years ago. Today, digital is fundamental to our future.

We’re leading the way in digital insurance to give our customers the experience they expect.  And by investing in digital technology - such as our digital hub MyAviva - we will make the most of our competitive advantage as a composite insurer. 

We have great foundations: - a strong balance sheet, an excellent brand and quality businesses. We are simply focused on delivering for our customers while disrupting the way our industry works.

Our Group CEO Mark Wilson says:

We have tremendous advantages: a clear strategy, a well-respected brand, strong values and outstanding technical skills. We're focused on delivering for our customers, while disrupting the way our industry works.

Our people and their dedication to our customers is what sets us apart.  We have a clear set of values which guide what we do and how we do it: care more, kill complexity, never rest and create legacy.
