    Aviva expects to generate an extra 3 billion pounds in cash over the next two years and will make acquisitions as well as giving money back to shareholders, it said on Thursday, sending its share price to three-month highs. Insurers and reinsurers, among them Allianz and Swiss Re, have been returning cash to shareholders as strong competition cuts opportunities for expansion. Aviva has made a number of disposals in the past year, including in France, Spain, Italy and Taiwan, and says its Indian joint venture is under "strategic review".

    Big insurers welcome regulators' rethink of sector risks

    Global regulators are rethinking how to assess risks in big insurance companies, marking a shift that could make life easier for the industry. The Financial Stability Board said on Tuesday it could take a different approach to assessing risk which would change the way it compiles a list of "systemically" important insurers that must comply with tough rules to cushion them against losses. The FSB, which coordinates financial rules across the Group of 20 (G20) economies, first created its list of globally systemic insurers in 2013 and updates it each November.

Reuters reported the rethink earlier this month, marking a big win for insurers following pressure from the U.S. Treasury. The FSB, which coordinates financial rules across the Group of 20 (G20) economies, updates its list of globally systemic insurers each November.

    Bubbly bitcoin not worth the wager - investors

    Bitcoin may have surged a staggering 700 percent since the start of the year but most investors at a Reuters Summit this week said they had not been tempted to play the volatile cryptocurrency. The difficulty of assigning a fair value to a speculative instrument that is less than a decade old and lacks the fundamentals that drive other asset classes was the main reason for steering clear of bitcoin, investors speaking at the Reuters Global Investment 2018 Outlook Summit said. Others said the cryptocurrency's use for criminal purposes such as money laundering was another reason to stay away, as was the widespread perception that the bitcoin rally was another bubble destined to burst.

    Global regulators stretch timeline for insurance capital rule

    Global regulators have given themselves more time to bridge transatlantic differences that have delayed the world's first capital rule for insurers, raising a cheer in the sector. The International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) said its members have agreed in Kuala Lumpur on a "unified path to convergence" to further the "ultimate goal" of a single International Capital Standard (ICS). In a compromise seen as helping to keep Europe and the United States on board, the IAIS said there will be a two-phased introduction after the revised version of the draft standard comes out in late 2019.

    UK insurers face bigger compensation pot contribution

    LONDON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 30 (Reuters) - Britain's markets watchdog flagged a shift on Monday towards a "polluter pays" model of compensation by forcing insurers to pay more into a pot for consumers out of pocket.

    LONDON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 17 (Reuters) - Pearson (Xetra: 858266 - news) said pressures weighing on its North American business were starting to ease, enabling the group to nudge its full-year profit outlook higher and record the first positive trading update for the education group in recent years. Hit by the shift to digital from paper textbooks, Pearson (Amsterdam: PR8.AS - news) has cut thousands of jobs and launched a rental and online business following a string of profit warnings. On Tuesday it said the rate of decline within its North American Higher Education courseware business had eased, while a reduction in its tax rate and a deal to insure part of its pension obligations would help its financial performance.
