Aviva Investors wins three insurance investment awards

(London) – Aviva Investors, the global asset management business of Aviva plc (‘Aviva’), has won three industry awards for the work of its insurance asset management business, which creates and manages outcome-oriented asset management strategies for global insurers.

The company was awarded ‘Data Science Solution Provider of the Year’ and ‘Investment Team of the Year – Asset Manager’ at the 2020 Insurance Asset Risk Awards ceremony, whilst also being recognised at the 2020 InsuranceERM Awards, winning the ‘Insurance Asset Manager of the Year’ category.

Al Denholm, CIO, Solutions at Aviva Investors, said:

“We are pleased to receive these awards, and particularly for data solutions, at a time when insurers have increased their focus on investment performance and the requirements for high quality data has therefore grown. Our client portal was developed to provide more detailed information and data, allowing clients to manage balance sheets at a more granular level. We believe it allows investment strategies to be run with more agility, which should subsequently deliver better investment outcomes within portfolios.”

Alex Wharton, Head of Insurance Relationships at Aviva Investors, added:

“To receive two further awards for the quality of our asset management is testament to the work of our insurance asset management team and our diversified investment capabilities, as we continue to grow our reputation in the industry and attract more third-party relationships.”

The awards build on Aviva Investors’ success at last year’s Insurance Asset Risk Awards, where it won ‘Alternatives Manager of the Year’ and ‘Investment Team of the Year – Asset Manager’ for its work in structured finance, and ‘Insurance Asset Manager of the Year’ at the 2019 InsuranceERM Awards.
