LONDON (Reuters) - Aviva has acquired Azur Underwriting's high-net-worth personal lines business in Britain and Ireland, the British insurer said on Tuesday, as it looks to build up its private clients business.

The purchase follows a recent deal to take on AXA XL's private clients team and business, Aviva said in a statement.

Aviva did not disclose a price for the Azur deal.
