No change in the narrative. Aviva’s ship sails on as usual. The PRT business is still going well, inflation remains an impediment to a strong P&C improvement, retail customers seem more interested in the rising cost of living than savings’ products and Aviva investors see no real signs of an improvement.
This is the same story as in recent quarters and, in that context, our thesis remains the same.

Fears vs Fundamentals (again)
For 2 years, European banks have enjoyed potent earnings upgrades. For 2 years, valuations have been trapped between ''unease'' and ''outright panic'' multiples.

NAHL’s AGM statement released today, is encouraging as management continues to scale the businesses for further growth. As a result, the Board’s expectations for the full year remain unchanged and we make no alterations to our forecasts. As a reminder, these still call for a c.13% increase in adjusted PBT in 2023, c.170% in FY24 and a further c.70% in FY25. Our current fair value remains at 65p but this is likely to rise as the Group delivers on its significant potential.

We spent last week with HSBC and STAN in Hong Kong and Singapore, delving into the detail of structural drivers for Asia. Both banks have a good story to tell, with business models that are well positioned and being enhanced further. In isolation we did not learn enough to warrant a change in recommendation but tailwinds from the region are not to be overlooked.

Deep Dive - Market reactions to SaaS transitions
Our Deep Dive analysis indicates that the UK market is cautious on companies transitioning to SaaS business models. Investors have punished share prices of companies reporting declines in revenue growth and margins even though the declines are temporary and explained by the transition to SaaS. However, after the completion of SaaS transitions, companies are typically rewarded with high multiples for high recurring revenues and margins.
