Hi R Sharman In one word Italy Prudential exposure to sovereign debt held by the shareholder backed business at the end of last year was £16.5 billion. Of this Italy was just 58 million but if the situation goes pear shaped there would be a knock on effect to the rest of the eurozone and the world in general. It would be extremely serious in terms of confidence and valuation. You may ask what is this debt. Governments sell interest bearing bonds to finance there spending. Prudential buy these bonds on the basis they are safe and provide regular income. As we have seen with Greece Italy and the UK the need to stay in power by spending more than getting in from tax receipt is out of control. Is the drop in the share price overdone. Probably and the rebound could be significant if there is a change in sentiment.

Churchill2, I think it is because of the get rich slow and stress free nature of Pru having a good strategy, and executing well. A stark contrast to the excitement and angst of very busy boards like CVR and GNC recently. I suspect ARW will liven up one day too.

Its ironical that on these boards you can read pages and pages of rubbish on second rate companies yet staring them in the face is this first class British company that hardly gets a mention.

Re 415 Has there a deal been done? Perhaps news tomorrow but the share price of Pru and Aviva would signify something could be in the pipeline.

One of the Guardian's picks for 2018.PrudentialThe insurer, 1905.5p, remains a good pick in its sector. It is one of the leading insurers in Asia, where business is booming (the Pru is in the top three in nine of the 12 countries it operates in).With a push across China, the new chief executive of the Pru's Asian arm believes Asia can double earnings again over the next five to seven years.The roll-out in Africa continues and in the UK, the Pru and M&G insurance and investment arms have merged. In the US, uncertainty around new rules may affect sales of variable annuities but long-term opportunities in the fee-based adviser market look good. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/jan/02/the-guardians-share-tips-for-2018

I understand this is the last day to make an offer for £13 billion worth of annuities that PRU is reported to have put up for sale. So for those who may have forgotten or missed this date in the Christmas rush you had better get your skates on. What are they worth? Have not got a clue. Legal & General are reported to be interested as well as Aviva. Presumably if gives PRU substantial funds to finance expansion in Asia/Africa and possibly return some to Shareholders. Hopefully Pru can keep firing on all cylinders through 2018 but no doubt there will be challenges ahead. Seasons Greetings

Manager of £1.6bn Monks Investment Trust: 'Being cautious in rising markets isn't our style' In focus | Prudential Charles Plowden explains why Prudential is one of his key holdings I love the Pru, which very few other people do. The firm’s chief motivation has been to change perceptions. The latest effort has been to close large parts of its UK business and focus on Asia. It wants to be seen as a high-growth Asian insurer. We own both Prudential and Asian rival AIA. They’re very similar, in terms of products and margins, particularly because AIA has been run by ex-Prudential management. AIA does have an advantage in mainland China, thanks to more extensive licences. The two nearly merged in 2010. Back then, Prudential was underselling itself and it still remains undervalued compared with its Asian peers. Its current price encompasses no future growth. I can justify today’s valuation on the basis of business it has already written. If you value Prudential’s Asian business on the same basis as AIA’s, you can add £36bn to its current £47bn valuation. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/investing/funds/manager-16bn-monks-investment-trust-cautious-rising-markets/ I don’t know how that comes about, though, or what is stopping it happening. The degree of undervaluation is slowly reducing, but there are still very few large British stocks so clearly undervalued. Everyone thinks it’s boring, but that’s the point. There’s nothing special about its business model, it’s just a life company. It will deliver double-digit growth over the next five, 10, 20 years, and it’s rated as though it won’t grow at all. It’s really all about Asia, which is 30pc of the business but 80pc of the value.

Sold all of it today after more than eleven years. Juicy profits. Nearly got sentimental when I pressed the button. :) Still hold some indirectly through various ITs.
