The firm is going through a round of 60 job cuts after a strategic review of its business, but Aviva said Mr Abberley’s departure was not part of those cuts.

In a statement, Aviva Investors said: “Paul Abberley left the business at the end of November. Over the past few months, Paul worked closely with our chief executive John Misselbrook to further develop our investment proposition.”
