Aviva is to sell its Turkish general insurance business to a private equity consortium led by EMF Capital Partners. This move is part of Aviva’s wider strategy to narrow the group’s focus on businesses where it has a leadership position and can generate attractive returns and follows similar sales of businesses in Spain, Malaysia and the USA.
