Aviva plc is in negotiations to broker a deal with a division of Asia-focused conglomerate Jardine Matheson, which will lead to a fresh assault on Indonesia and other fast-growing Asian economies, The Telegraph reported. The London-based insurer, which is exiting the U.S. financial services market with its sale of Aviva USA, is seeking to grow its presence in southeast Asia. The talks are thought to be in their early stages but would see Aviva partner with Astra, the region's largest independent automotive group, to sell life policies into the country. If successful, Aviva could work with Astra to explore sales channels in other countries in the region.
