Prudential plc, together with its subsidiaries, provides retail financial products and services, and asset management services to individuals and businesses in Asia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. The company serves approximately 24 million insurance customers. Business Units The company is structured around four main business units: Prudential Corporation Asia (incorporating the asset management business, Eastspring Investments), Jackson National Life Insurance Company (Jackson), Prudential UK and Europe insurance operations, and M&G. Prudential Corporation Asia has operations in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and other Asian countries. Its core business is health, protection, either attached to a life policy or on a standalone basis, other life insurance (including participating business) and mutual funds. It also provides selected personal lines property and casualty insurance, group insurance, institutional fund management and consumer finance (Vietnam only). The product range offered is tailored to suit the individual country markets. Insurance products are distributed mainly through an agency sales force together with selected banks, while the majority of mutual funds are sold through banks and brokers. In the United States, the company offers a range of products through Jackson, including fixed annuities (fixed interest rate annuities, fixed index annuities and immediate annuities), variable annuities and institutional products (including guaranteed investment contracts and funding agreements). Jackson distributes these products through independent insurance agents, independent broker-dealers, regional broker-dealers, wirehouses, registered investment advisers, as well as banks, credit unions and other financial institutions. Jackson also offers fee-based separately managed accounts and investment products through Curian Capital, LLC, which is Jackson’s registered investment adviser. In the United Kingdom, the company is structured into Prudential UK & Europe (consisting of the insurance operations) and M&G (the U.K. and European fund manager of the Group) and offers a range of retail financial products and services, including long-term insurance and asset accumulation and retirement income products (life insurance, pensions and pension annuities), retail investment and unit trust products, and fund management services. The company in the United Kingdom primarily distributes these products through financial advisers, partnership agreements with other financial institutions, and direct marketing, by telephone, mail, Internet and face-to-face advisers. The life insurance products offered by Prudential in Asia include with-profits (participating) and non-participating term, whole life and endowment and unit-linked policies often combined with protection riders and typically with regular premium payments. Prudential in Asia also offers health, disablement, critical illness and accident cover to supplement its core life products. Asian Business The company’s product portfolio is centred around providing a financial safety net to customers. The product mix reflects this with around 1/3 of premiums directed to Health and Protection products, 1/3 to unit linked products and 1/3 to Participating products. In Malaysia and Indonesia, the company also offers life insurance policies that comply with Islamic principles known as Takaful. The company launched the SafeSteps programme with an initial series of six infomercials featuring SafeSteps ambassador Manny Pacquiao that provide life saving advice in the event of a natural disaster. Eastspring Investments Eastspring Investments, the company’s asset management business in Asia, manages investments for Prudential’s Asia, the U.K. and the U.S. life companies and also has third-party retail and institutional clients.
