    Exclusive: Foreign insurers gear up to tap China's $1.6 trillion pensions business - sources

    Foreign insurers including Generali and Prudential Plc are in early talks with authorities to enter China's private pensions sector, people with knowledge of the matter said, as Beijing opens up to overseas companies. Hong Kong-based AIA Group and Manulife Financial are also considering similar moves, they said. Beijing gave approval to the first foreign joint-venture firm to establish a pensions insurance business last month and two of the people said China has been running pilot projects in three provinces involving foreign firms.

    FTSE 100 glows as sterling dims; Brexit deadlock unbroken

    The FTSE 100, which earns more than two-thirds of its earnings in U.S. dollars, added 0.6 percent on its best day in a week - and the FTSE 250 was up 0.1 percent. Sterling lost more than a percent as May failed to sway hardline opponents of her European Union divorce deal with an offer to quit, while none of eight indicative options to break the Brexit deadlock won majority support in parliament. Tobacco giant Imperial Brands advanced 2.3 percent and British American Tobacco climbed 2 percent as brokerage Citi hiked rating on both stocks to "Buy" saying regulatory threat will probably move away from cigarettes.

The pan-region STOXX 600 index slipped 0.1 percent, with Frankfurt's trade-sensitive index DAX giving up most gains to close 0.08 percent lower, while Madrid and Milan slipped more than half a percent each.

    Prudential shifts 36 billion pounds in assets to Luxembourg ahead of Brexit

    Britain's biggest insurer, Prudential, has transferred 36 billion pounds in customer assets to its new Luxembourg subsidiary ahead of Brexit, it said on Wednesday, as the company reported a six percent rise in operating profit. Insurers and banks have been shifting hundreds of billions of pounds in assets to European Union subsidiaries regardless of the form Brexit takes, reversing decades of European financial market integration and chipping away at the City of London’s dominance. British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a second, heavy parliamentary defeat on the withdrawal deal she struck with the EU on Tuesday, leaving open the possibility of an abrupt, economically damaging Brexit without a transition arrangement.

    UK finance sector ready for any type of Brexit - minister

    Britain's financial sector will continue to function properly whatever form Brexit takes, a junior minister said on Tuesday, though the head of an industry body said it would back proposals to avert Britain leaving the EU without a withdrawal deal. Britain is due to leave the European Union next month, but has not yet agreed a divorce settlement with the bloc, creating uncertainty and fears about a potentially disorderly departure. "We are very focused at the Treasury for preparing for any outcome," junior finance minister Robert Jenrick told the annual conference of the Association of British Insurers.

    FTSE 100 banks on financial stocks; Persimmon knocks housebuilders

    The FTSE 100 closed 0.1 percent higher, lagging other major European bourses where investors took comfort from U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to delay raising tariffs on Chinese imports. Lloyd's of London insurer Hiscox, which recently joined the FTSE 100, added 3 percent after reporting a profit for the year that beat market expectations. The pound gained after European Council President Donald Tusk said delaying Brexit beyond the planned March 29 exit date would be a "rational solution" as there was no majority in the British parliament to approve a divorce deal.

    Wholesale insurers given all clear by British watchdog

    Britain's wholesale insurance brokers got a clean bill of health from the markets watchdog on Wednesday, providing some relief for an industry already spending millions of pounds on Brexit. London's insurance market, which spans the Lloyd's of London market and brokers such as Aon, Willis Towers Watson, JLT and Marsh, controlled £60 billion in gross written premiums in 2017. The Financial Conduct Authority announced a review in November 2017, saying there were concerns about how large players place business to earn larger fees.

    Prudential Financial misses fourth-quarter earnings estimates

    A loss in Prudential's individual life insurance business and lower operating income in its asset management unit were among the factors that drove the company's fourth-quarter performance. The No. 1 U.S. life insurer by assets reported adjusted operating income, which excludes realized gains and losses from investments, of $1 billion (£772 million), or $2.44 per share, compared with $1.2 billion, or $2.69 per share, in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted operating income for PGIM, Prudential's asset management arm, fell 20.6 percent to $243 million from $306 million a year earlier, the company said.

    China's Union Life to sell majority stake, draw local, overseas bidders -sources

    China's Union Life Insurance is planning to sell a controlling stake, and the deal could attract locals and foreigners looking to tap into the country's growing demand for insurance products, three people familiar with the matter said. Union Life, expected to be valued at $1.5 billion to $2 billion, plans to sell as much as 51 percent, with an option to raise that to 100 percent later, said the people, who declined to be named as the deal process is not public yet. AIA, the world's second-largest life insurer by market value, and the Asian unit of Prudential are among the foreign players likely to submit initial bids due over the next few weeks, the people added.
