The announcement comes as 56-year-old Richard Harvey
steps down on his way to retirement, after six years at the helm of the UK’s

The surprise announcement comes just under a year after the group’s failed

The choice of Moss has surprised analysts, who’ve suggested he has ‘come up

Moss, who joined Aviva in 2004 from insurance market Lloyd’s of London, will
be replaced at the financial controls by Philip Scott, an Aviva veteran
currently in charge of its North American and Asian operations.
