AVIVA HAS DROPPED Ernst & Young as its auditors replacing them with PwC.

The FTSE 100 insurance business announced at its last annual general meeting it was putting its audit requirements out to tender.

Today the company revealed after ten years it was changing its auditor.
A spokeswoman said the business had an "excellent relationship" with its former auditors.

PwC will work with the company from its 2012 financial year subject to shareholder approval at the 2012 annual general meeting.

A statement from Aviva said: "The board of Aviva would like to thank Ernst & Young for the excellent audit services provided to Aviva group."
