The two groups came to an agreement over Aseval back in December, terminating the legal proceedings between them.

In an announcement made at the time of the agreement, Aviva said the cash proceeds, which total £494m in sterling, will be used for general corporate purposes.

The transaction will increase Aviva's economic capital surplus by approximately £0.5bn, IGD capital surplus by approximately £0.4bn and IFRS net assets by approximately £0.2bn.

Aviva's share price had edged 1.3% higher to 303.70p in opening trade.
