JPMorgan has been a custodian to Aviva since 1992 and back office provider since 2004. The assets under its administration were £274bn as of late September 2012.
“Aviva's relationship with JPMorgan is an important one, and we are pleased to extend it. JPMorgan’s support of our business model through its flexible platform positions us well to satisfy our clients today, as well as to evolve as markets continue to change,” said global CEO at Aviva Investors, John Hodgson.
Aviva will use JPMorgan’s platform, which is designed to be customizable and can support a range of fund types, including alternative investments.
Francis Jackson, head of investor services, Emea at JPMorgan, said the custodian is looking forward to deepening its extensive custody relationship with Aviva.
