LONDON-Aviva PLC (AV.LN) is selling Friends Provident International Ltd. (FPIL) to RL360 Holding Co., a subsidiary of International Financial Group Ltd., for up to 340 million pounds ($437.9 million).

Following a strategic review of FPIL, the pension provider concluded the business was not central to its strategy, which sees the group focus on a small number of markets where it has scale and profitability or a distinct competitive advantage. In a statement this morning the company said that it has reached an agreement with the Aviva Group to acquire Friends Provident International Limited.

The deal brings the group's embedded value to over £1bn, assets to £15.9bn and policies to 250,000.

"The acquisition is an important milestone in our history and will create a combined Embedded Value* of over £1bn, leaving no doubt as to IFGL's position as an important, key player in the life industry, as well as the offshore consolidation market".

Friends Provident International has 160,000 customers, typically expat Brits in Hong Kong, Singapore or Dubai.
