INSURER Aviva yesterday managed to avoid a repeat of last year’s shareholder revolt, with investors backing the board at its annual meeting.

Former chief executive Andrew Moss was forced out last year following its annual meeting, after about half of investors rejected the management pay.

This year, 88 per cent voted in favour of the company’s pay proposal. Proxy groups had been calling on investors to oppose it.
