Our 2018 interim results

On 2 August 2018, we announced our 2018 interim results. Here’s what Mark Wilson, our Group CEO, had to say on our performance so far in 2018:

We're sorry we can't play this video right now. You could try reloading the page or viewing the video on our YouTube channel.

During these choppy market conditions, it is reassuring that Aviva’s results are consistent, dependable and growing.

2018 interim dividend

Alongside our interim results, we announced that our 2018 interim dividend was 9.25 pence per share and would be payable on 24 September 2018. We’d like to remind you to keep your bank details up to date with our Registrar, Computershare, to make sure you get your dividends on the payment date.

If you provide updated bank details to Computershare and have outstanding dividends, you will receive these direct to your bank account. If you have set up a SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) bank mandate instruction, Computershare will contact you directly to arrange the repayment of any outstanding dividends, but there may be charges involved.

The Aviva Foundation

In our June Shareholder Update, we mentioned that we would be using a charitable foundation to make use of the proceeds from unlocking dormant assets on our share register. 

We have now set up the foundation and we have created a short survey to give shareholders an opportunity to share their views on the areas the Foundation could support in our communities. The survey should take no longer than 5 minutes and will be open until the 26th of October.
