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 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.

Years of flattering fund reports from Prudential convinced David Mitchell, 69, that he was due a fair-sized pension. When it didn't materialise, he launched a decade-long campaign for answers in plain English. But experts say financial firms are still bamboozling consumers and putting them at risk.

HONG KONG/BEIJING, Nov 19 (Reuters) - China will accept applications early next year from foreign insurers seeking to take control of their local joint ventures and is even weighing giving them full ownership earlier than flagged, people with direct knowledge of the matter said. Britain's Prudential Plc and Canada's Sun Life Financial Inc are among insurers who expressed interest in recent months in owning more of their China operations. China has set an agenda to open up its financial sector and has already taken steps this year to relax foreign ownerships in securities ventures.
Global insurance regulators will suspend designating globally systemically important insurers, who are required to hold extra capital, in a victory for companies such as American International Group (AIG.N) and Prudential (PRU.L). The International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) said it wants to replace the list of "too big to fail" insurers, last published in 2016, with a broader framework from 2020. In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, regulators singled out systemically important insurers who then face onerous bank-like capital rules to cover potential losses, increasing costs and potentially reducing shareholder returns.
Prudential (PRU.L), Britain's largest insurer, said new business profit from its life insurance operations rose 17 percent in the first nine months of the year, driven by another robust performance in Asia. After a tough year for many asset managers, however, Prudential said its two fund management units, M&G Investments and Asia-focused Eastspring, had both posted net outflows of external client money. "A key positive in Prudential's trading update is a move up in Asian volume growth," said KBW analyst Greig Paterson in a note to clients, flagging an 'outperform' rating and 2,100 pence price target, although he called the outflows "disappointing".
The company said new business profit in Asia, where a burgeoning middle class has boosted demand for insurance, rose 15 percent to 1.76 billion pounds. The life insurer, which has a market value of around 42 billion pounds, is in the process of demerging that will see the UK and European insurance and asset management units of the 170-year-old company split off into a separate company. The planned demerger was on track, Prudential said in the business performance update ahead of an investor day event in Singapore.
