FTSE Insurers - Q3 results and a Solvency II whisper...

Busy week on the IMS front for all the UK Q3 guys - Standard Life, L&G, St James Place and Royal London all coughed up with some pretty underwhelming stuff (though it was nice to see the Isle of Man-based 360 keeping the Royal London numbers honest!).

Normally Solvency II stays low on the agenda in the odd quarters, however Aviva threw a Christmas bonus in with their news on the legal restructure of Aviva UK's general insurance business, which is freeing up a whopping £200m in IGD surplus, halves the number of entities and will reduce in a "significant reduction" of Solvency II capital required.

Hub and spoke - its the way to go
