A panel of U.S. regulators will next week discuss whether global insurer Prudential should continue to be subject to stringent oversight, according to a public notice and a company statement. The U.S. Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC), which designates which financial companies would pose a risk to the country's financial system if they failed, said on Wednesday it would hold a meeting on Feb. 21 to discuss the "annual reevaluation of the designation of a nonbank financial company". Prudential said in a statement Thursday it was the company under review.
The FTSE 100 was up 1.2 percent at 7,177.06 points at its close, regaining some of last week's losses but still near a 13-month low. Energy, materials and financials gave the index its biggest boost as the cyclical stocks that had suffered the worst losses last week led the gains. Oil majors Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) and BP (BP.L) both rose around 2 percent, as crude prices also recovered from last week's declines.
Prudential's adjusted operating profit was $1.17 billion (843.06 million pounds), or $2.69 per share, in the fourth quarter, up from $1.09 billion, or $2.46 per share, in the year-earlier period. Analysts were expecting earnings per share of $2.65, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Adjusted operating income from the company's individual annuities business rose 28 percent to $541 million, driven in part by higher policy fees that were triggered by higher account values in variable annuities.

Britain might ease a European Union rule blamed by insurers for jacking up capital requirements, the Bank of England said on Tuesday. British lawmakers want the BoE to "urgently" amend the risk margin in EU insurance capital rules known as Solvency II. This refers to a capital add-on to cover what a third party would need to safeguard policies if an insurer goes bust. "In our view the calculation in Solvency II is wrong," Bank of England Deputy Governor Sam Woods told parliament's Treasury Select Committee.
The Bank of England has proposed easing the burden of European Union capital rules for insurers, but the industry urged the regulator to go further and meet calls from British lawmakers for more radical change. The BoE's Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), which supervises banks and insurers, published a consultation paper to lighten some reporting requirements under the bloc's Solvency II rules. The PRA said the proposed changes take into account recommendations for reform made by the Association of British Insurers (ABI), and by parliament's Treasury Select Committee.

Global regulators are rethinking how to assess risks in big insurance companies, marking a shift that could make life easier for the industry. The Financial Stability Board said on Tuesday it could take a different approach to assessing risk which would change the way it compiles a list of "systemically" important insurers that must comply with tough rules to cushion them against losses. The FSB, which coordinates financial rules across the Group of 20 (G20) economies, first created its list of globally systemic insurers in 2013 and updates it each November.
A global list of insurers that must comply with tougher rules won't be updated this year because its compilation could change, the Financial Stability Board said on Tuesday. Reuters reported the rethink earlier this month, marking a big win for insurers following pressure from the U.S. Treasury. The FSB, which coordinates financial rules across the Group of 20 (G20) economies, updates its list of globally systemic insurers each November.
Bitcoin may have surged a staggering 700 percent since the start of the year but most investors at a Reuters Summit this week said they had not been tempted to play the volatile cryptocurrency. The difficulty of assigning a fair value to a speculative instrument that is less than a decade old and lacks the fundamentals that drive other asset classes was the main reason for steering clear of bitcoin, investors speaking at the Reuters Global Investment 2018 Outlook Summit said. Others said the cryptocurrency's use for criminal purposes such as money laundering was another reason to stay away, as was the widespread perception that the bitcoin rally was another bubble destined to burst.
Prudential expects its Asian business to double in size every five to seven years, the British life insurer said after reporting the region drove a 17 percent rise in new business profit during the first nine months of 2017. Britain's largest insurer, which traditionally saw its revenue fairly equally split between Asia, the United States and Britain, has pushed ahead with Asian growth in recent years. Asia was "in some ways, ours to lose", Chief Executive Mike Wells told investors on Thursday after Prudential said that new business profit in the region rose 15 percent to 1.61 billion pounds, helped by higher sales and rising interest rates.
New business profit of 2.47 billion pounds was driven by higher sales and favourable economics, Prudential said ahead of an investor day on Thursday. Asia was "in some ways, ours to lose", Prudential Chief Executive Mike Wells told investors after reporting new business profit in the region rose 15 percent to 1.61 billion pounds, helped by higher sales and rising interest rates. Seven countries clocked double-digit growth in Asia, including Hong Kong, Singapore and China, which said last week it would ease foreign ownership curbs in the financial sector, with the limit on insurance companies due to be raised to 51 percent after three years, and fully removed after five.
