Prudential Looks Set to Return to Normal Levels of Growth That Will Be Added to by Pulse

Henry Heathfield Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Henry Heathfield |

Prudential is now a fully focussed Asia and Africa business accessing the high growth of these markets. This has come about with the divestment of M&G plc completed in October 2019 and the completed separation of Jackson in September 2021. Though Prudential still holds a small Jackson stake. We think the focus of the market is currently on lower growth and that is what is being extrapolated. However, we do not think the restricted movement conditions in China and Hong Kong will last forever and we see a trend of an easing of these restrictions. With that we also believe there will be a normalisation of new business contributions and the rates of growth within the in-force business will start to approach something more normal.

Company Profile PRU

Business Description

Prudential was originally established in 1848 during the reign of Queen Victoria as Prudential Mutual Assurance, Investment, and Loan Association. The company was founded to offer life assurance and loans to the middle classes and a few years later established its industrial department. Here the company sold insurance to the working classes and became synonymous with "Man from the Pru" door-to-door sales. Over the years Pru purchased various companies and in the 1920s listed on the London Stock Exchange. With the recent divestments of Jackson and Mercantile & General, Pru is returning to some historical roots. The company is focused on selling health and protection as attachments to long-term savings to upper, middle, and working classes.
