The counterparty credit ratings on U.K.-based Prudential PLC (Prudential)
reflect its position as the holding company for the Prudential group (the
group), which has a very strong competitive position, resilient and
diversified operating earnings profile, and very strong financial flexibility.
Strong enterprise risk management has helped mitigate some of the adverse
effects on capital adequacy of current market conditions, although financial
market risks remain elevated. These strengths are partially offset by
pressures on current and prospective capital adequacy and the shifting profile
of the group away from its historical strength in the U.K.
Prudential owns significant life insurance and asset management operations in
Asia, the U.S., and the U.K. It had approximately GBP363 billion in funds under
management on June 30, 2012.
