Shares in specialist pension provider Just Group fell more than 7% on Thursday after it posted a 59% drop in first-quarter sales and said it would shut its loss-making U.S. operations as part of a cost-cutting programme. Just Group, which specialises in annuities for people with a reduced life expectancy, has been suffering from the prospect of new rules from Britain's Prudential Regulation Authority requiring more capital to be put behind lifetime mortgages, one of its key products. Chief Executive Rodney Cook stood down last month, following the departure last year of the company's chief financial officer.

Just Group, which specialises in annuities for people with a reduced life expectancy, has been suffering from the prospect of new rules from Britain's Prudential Regulation Authority requiring more capital to be put behind lifetime mortgages, one of its key products. Just Group in March announced a discounted share issue, raised 375 million pounds ($481.46 million) in capital, and cancelled its 2018 dividend after delaying it last year.

The Investment Association said it had written to 69 British companies which it said have no women on their boards or just one asking them for explanations following the government-backed Hampton-Alexander Review which set a target of ensuring women make up at least a third of leadership teams by 2020. "It is totally unacceptable that one in five of the UK’s biggest companies are falling so far short ... Companies must do more than take the tokenistic step of appointing just one woman to their board and consider that job done," the association's Chief Executive Chris Cummings said in a statement on Friday. The letter comes just ahead of the season for most companies' annual general meeting, where investors vote on a range of issues including board membership, and which are set to see increased push-back from investors over poor performers.
The domestically-focussed FTSE 250, more exposed to outcomes of Brexit proceedings, rose 0.6 percent. Wednesday's parliamentary vote paved the way for another one on Thursday that could delay Britain's exit from the European Union until at least the end of June.
Just's share price has been hit hard by concerns about the impact of planned changes to capital requirements, due to come into effect at the end of this year, which forced it to delay a annual dividend payment last year and raised worries it would have to raise capital. On Thursday the company, formed by the merger of Just Retirement and Partnership Assurance in 2016, announced that it plans to sell about 10 percent of its existing shares to institutional investors in a placement at just 10 pence apiece and would separately launch a debt issue that would raise at least 300 million pounds.

British retirement services specialist Just Group said on Wednesday that total new business sales for the year to end-December were up 15 percent, helped by strong demand from companies to pass on pension scheme risk.

Cash-strapped pensioners are missing out on thousands of pounds of income by failing to claim their full entitlement to State Benefits.

Just Group said the rules announced by the BoE's Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA), were "considerably less onerous" than set out in a consultation paper earlier this year, adding that the outcome was well within its planning ranges. "We welcome the greater clarity provided by the Policy Statement, and the PRA’s recognition of the important role played by equity release mortgages' for our customers as they plan their retirement finances," Just Group said in a statement. The PRA also said transitional provisions of the European Union's Solvency II rules, which detail the amount of capital insurance companies must hold to reduce the risk of insolvency, could still be used by companies.
