FCA raps Aviva on the knuckles over share announcement

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has today publicly censured Aviva for making an announcement that had the potential to mislead the market.

The regulator detailed that the announcement on 8 March 2018 (the Announcement) concerned Aviva’s preliminary year-end results.

However, the watchdog has not issued a financial penalty because Aviva reacted quickly and put in place a payment scheme for shareholders affected.
