Britain's Financial Conduct Authority said on Tuesday it was finalising "remedies" to stop home and car insurance companies penalising loyal customers. The watchdog said the "loyalty penalty" cost longstanding customers an extra 1.2 billion pounds ($1.56 billion) in 2018. More than four in five adults in Britain have one or more insurance products, and consumers who stay with their existing insurer at renewal almost always pay higher premiums than those who switch or negotiate, the FCA said in Sector Views, its annual review of key concerns for the year ahead.

LONDON/ZURICH, Feb 7 (Reuters) - Tidjane Thiam is unlikely to quietly retire after his abrupt exit as chief executive of Credit Suisse, some of those who have worked with him predict. "A bit like walking on a tightrope", is how Thiam described leadership in 2012. Leaving the country after the 1999 coup, he became a partner at consultancy McKinsey, before entering insurance at Aviva and then moving on to Prudential, becoming the FTSE 100's first black CEO in 2009.
Prudential is in talks that could lead to it taking full control of its 50:50 joint venture with China's CITIC and is considering selling some or all of its U.S. business to sharpen its focus on Asia, a source told Reuters. Changes in January to foreign ownership laws in China have made it possible for the first time for the British life insurer to own all of its CITIC joint venture, a landmark transaction which the source said Prudential was working towards.

Britain's regulators should have a formal role after Brexit to keep the financial sector globally competitive and less prone to "gold-plating" international norms, an industry think tank said on Thursday. The International Regulatory Strategy Group (IRSG) said new thinking and targeted reforms were required after Britain leaves the European Union on Jan. 31.

M&G's life and pensions arm said it has suspended a 164 million pound property fund, days after the British fund manager froze dealing in its 2.5 billion pound ($3.21 billion) flagship UK property fund. The ban impacts the Prudential M&G Property Portfolio Fund, a fund fully invested in M&G's Property Portfolio which was suspended on Dec. 4, an M&G spokesman said in an emailed statement on Saturday. M&G suspended dealing in its flagship UK property fund on Wednesday, blaming Brexit uncertainty and weakness in the retail sector for a surge in investor requests to cash out.
JOHANNESBURG/LONDON, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Anglo-South African financial services group Investec expects to raise about 189 million pounds ($242 million) from the sale of around 10% of its asset management business, which will be renamed Ninety One when it is spun off in March. Investec, which manages more than 119 billion pounds ($154 billion) in assets, announced plans for the split last year and said the asset manager would be better able to focus on creating long term value away from Investec's banking and wealth operations. The demerger follows similar moves by Prudential, Old Mutual and Deutsche Bank as fees fall and costs rise in the fund management sector.
Britain's FTSE 100 rose on Monday on renewed hopes an initial Sino-U.S. trade deal may be clinched this year while further signs the Conservatives are set to win an election next month drove mid-caps to their highest since September 2018. The main index climbed 1%, boosted by miners and Asia-focused financial stocks HSBC and Prudential after the U.S. national security adviser said a preliminary trade deal was possible this year. The index, which jumped more than 1% in the previous session, was also supported by a 3% gain in Burberry after rival LVMH agreed to buy U.S. jeweller Tiffany for $16.2 billion.
Shares in Aviva slid on Wednesday after the British insurer announced it would reorganise into five divisions and sell its stake in its Hong Kong business, falling short of investor expectations for a broader change in strategy. Analysts had speculated Aviva might announce that it would sell smaller European operations such as France or Italy to focus on the UK, or offload books of life insurance closed to new customers. Aviva is folding Aviva Investors, its fund management arm, into a broader investments, savings and retirement division.
London's FTSE 100 shed most of its earlier gains but still managed to close higher on Tuesday, as sentiment was supported by a surge in safety equipment maker Halma and hopes of more stimulus from economic powerhouse China. The FTSE 250, which had jumped over 1% earlier, ended with a 0.4% gain, still hovering at a 14-month high. Markets are viewing a prospective Tory victory as a positive on hopes that Prime Minister Boris Johnson, with a majority in parliament, will be able to reduce uncertainty by delivering Brexit on or before the Jan. 31 deadline.
