    Big insurers welcome regulators' rethink of sector risks

    Global regulators are rethinking how to assess risks in big insurance companies, marking a shift that could make life easier for the industry. The Financial Stability Board said on Tuesday it could take a different approach to assessing risk which would change the way it compiles a list of "systemically" important insurers that must comply with tough rules to cushion them against losses. The FSB, which coordinates financial rules across the Group of 20 (G20) economies, first created its list of globally systemic insurers in 2013 and updates it each November.

    Bubbly bitcoin not worth the wager - investors

    Bitcoin may have surged a staggering 700 percent since the start of the year but most investors at a Reuters Summit this week said they had not been tempted to play the volatile cryptocurrency. The difficulty of assigning a fair value to a speculative instrument that is less than a decade old and lacks the fundamentals that drive other asset classes was the main reason for steering clear of bitcoin, investors speaking at the Reuters Global Investment 2018 Outlook Summit said. Others said the cryptocurrency's use for criminal purposes such as money laundering was another reason to stay away, as was the widespread perception that the bitcoin rally was another bubble destined to burst.

    Prudential seeks larger slice of life in China as Asia drives profit

    Prudential expects its Asian business to double in size every five to seven years, the British life insurer said after reporting the region drove a 17 percent rise in new business profit during the first nine months of 2017. Britain's largest insurer, which traditionally saw its revenue fairly equally split between Asia, the United States and Britain, has pushed ahead with Asian growth in recent years. Asia was "in some ways, ours to lose", Chief Executive Mike Wells told investors on Thursday after Prudential said that new business profit in the region rose 15 percent to 1.61 billion pounds, helped by higher sales and rising interest rates.

    Prudential merges UK fund management with insurance in cost drive

    Britain's Prudential (Amsterdam: PD8.AS - news) moved to fend off competition from passive funds on Thursday, merging its M&G (Shanghai: 603899.SS - news) asset management and UK and European insurance businesses to save costs and improve its products. The lure of lower-cost index funds has driven a round of consolidation in the active funds sector, with deals such as the formation earlier this year of Janus Henderson through the merger of a U.S. and a UK fund firm. Prudential said the combined M&G Prudential business manages 332 billion pounds ($430 billion) in assets for over 6 million customers and employs more than 9,000 people.
