Aviva will no longer host hospitality events for its community of independent financial advisors who distribute Aviva Life products, following the release of the Financial Conduct Authority's guidance on inducements and conflicts of interest.

A spokeswoman for Aviva said: "The FCA has issued guidance on its position on hospitality for distributors. 

"Following this new clarification we have decided not to host hospitality events for our life distributors.

"This is to ensure that both Aviva and our distributors adhere to the FCA's ruling on this matter."
