Aviva closed the year 2016 with a net profit down by 22%. This decline is due to the new method of calculating bodily injury compensation which prompted the British group to provision 380 million GBP (467.5 million USD) in its accounts.

The new accounting method will come into effect on 20 March 2017. The operating income, which does not take into account provisions, increased, nevertheless, by 12% in 2016.
