Contingent Profit Commissions (CPC)

As part of our contracts with brokers/agents, Aviva recognizes broker efforts through the potential payment of Contingent Profit Commissions. CPC payments are not guaranteed – and are based on a share of the profitability of business submitted by the broker over an extended period – typically 3 years.

Profitability is measured by comparing premium revenue against expenses (eg claims cost, broker commission, staff salaries and premises costs etc).

Between 2010 to 2012, Aviva paid profit commissions of 2.2% of total revenues.

Other Services

A small number of Aviva brokers carry out additional services on our behalf. These may include data entry, processing claims payments and conducting site surveys. This additional work is compensated by payment of an agreed fee or commission.

Broker Ownership and Business Loans

Aviva, from time to time, has provided and will continue to provide financial support to a small number of brokers/agents for the purposes of succession continuity and business expansion. These may take the form of an equity position or loans. We expect these arrangements would in no way impact the advice given to customers but these ownership and financial arrangements should be disclosed by brokers to their clients.

From time to time, as part of normal business practice, we may invite individuals from broker offices to participate in entertainment events.
