    L&G to sell life policies business to Swiss Re for 650 million pounds

    L&G said the roughly one million life insurance policies held in its Mature Savings business were being taken over by Swiss Re's ReAssure division, a life and pensions business that manages closed and non-core in-force portfolios.

The deal is the latest by an insurer to offload a so-called "closed book" of business, policies which are still in force but not being grown further.

    Bank of England says wants SONIA to replace LIBOR by end of 2021

    The Bank of England said on Wednesday that it wanted the SONIA measure of overnight interest rates to replace scandal-hit LIBOR measure as the main benchmark for commercial sterling interest rates by the end of 2021. "It has become increasingly clear that we cannot rely on LIBOR in the long term," BoE Governor Mark Carney said in a speech to bankers in London. Carney said there was a risk that the banks which currently quote interbank lending rates that are used to calculate LIBOR might pull out and precipitate the benchmark's collapse, which he added "raises obvious financial stability concerns".
