Aviva scores a profit
OPERATING profits at Aviva Ireland, which sponsors the famous Lansdowne Road stadium, rose 13pc to €69m last year. Operating expenses also dropped by almost €13pc to €131.5m.
Hugh Hessing, Aviva Ireland chief executive, said the results show that Aviva continues to improve its performance, with €96m returned to the group, up a fifth on the previous year.
"Our results show that Aviva Ireland ended 2014 in a good position. We have more to do and we have a clear strategy in place to build on our performance in 2015," he said.
Premiums grew for the first time in eight years.
