    L&G to sell life policies business to Swiss Re for 650 million pounds

    L&G said the roughly one million life insurance policies held in its Mature Savings business were being taken over by Swiss Re's ReAssure division, a life and pensions business that manages closed and non-core in-force portfolios.

    Bank of England broadens market push to replace LIBOR

    The Bank of England has stepped up efforts to replace the scandal-hit LIBOR interest rate benchmark with the SONIA measure of overnight rates as the main benchmark for commercial sterling interest rates by the end of 2021. "It has become increasingly clear that we cannot rely on LIBOR in the long term," BoE Governor Mark Carney said in a speech to bankers in London on Wednesday. British regulators have already said they want a switch to SONIA by the end of 2021, and on Wednesday the BoE (Shenzhen: 000725.SZ - news) announced changes to ensure transition stays on track in the face of some market reluctance.
