CGNU, the parent group behind Norwich Union, formally changed its trading name today to become known as Aviva plc.
Aviva is the new trading name on the London Stock Exchange and in all literature requiring details of the company behind Norwich Union and the other 50 brand names under the parent group.
However, Norwich Union will remain the main UK brand, along with Delta Lloyd in the Netherlands, Commercial Union in Poland, Hibernian in Ireland and NZI in New Zealand.
The London Stock Exchange mnemonic for the company will change from "CGNU" to "AV" with effect from today but the stock code for the company's secondary listings on the Dublin and Paris exchanges will remain the same (ie GU8 and 5662).
Aviva shareholdings will be unaffected by the name change and existing share certificates should be retained, as they will remain valid for all purposes, but any new share certificates issued after 1 July 2002 will bear the company's new name.
