When the FTSE 100 dumps next, have a look at Prudential

Back in March here I wrote about Prudential (PRU) which might have been founded in London in May 1848, but today (post the spin-off of M&G (MNG)) is all about its US and Asian insurance and related business focus. And give it another few months its US business Jackson will be spun off following a shareholder vote this month, with investors getting one share in the company for every 40 Pru shares they hold today.

More Prudential splits gets closer and closer

Just over a year ago today, I wrote here about how investment industry giant Prudential (PRU) was ‘doing everything right in these troubled times’.  So no surprise to see the shares doubling over the last year although the shares are not back to their 2018 highs. Is there still scope to be excited in a company with a growing focus on Asia, especially after their spinning off of M&G (MNG) in late 2019?

Prudential: how do you say 'the man from the Pru' in emerging market tongues?

There are always many different shares to write about but I am surprised that i have troubled these pages with my thoughts on the Prudential (PRU).  As a self-confessed investment geek typically focused on longer-term themes and trends, there are few corporate names in the FTSE-100 as well set up as the Prudential with its growing exposure to the burgeoning Asian insurance market, a region where the last ten year renewal premium compound growth rate for the company has been a cool 18% and profits have grown even faster.
