Our Financial Strength

We have an A+ rating for financial strength from Standard & Poors*

The Solvency II regulatory regime came into force for European insurers on 1 January 2016. This means that we have to publish a Solvency and Financial Condition Report every year. This report gives our policyholders and other interested parties information on the financial strength of our regulated insurance companies, The Prudential Assurance Company Limited (PAC) and Prudential Pensions Limited (PPL).

M&G plc is the parent company of PAC and PPL. Starting from the year ended 31 December 2021, we have been granted approval from the Prudential Regulation Authority to prepare a single Group Solvency and Financial Condition Report that includes the required information for M&G plc, PAC and PPL. In previous years, each company prepared their own report.

We must report on five areas:

  1. Business and performance
  2. System of governance
  3. Risk profile
  4. Valuation for solvency purposes
  5. Capital management

Within each of these, we include details of the requirements we should meet.

The report shows we’re financially strong

The Solvency and Financial Condition Report shows that PAC and PPL are financially strong companies. This means we’re able to with stand major market volatility and make sure we continue to meet our commitments to you.

Taking on and managing risk is a key part of our business. The Report contains information on how we manage our risk and capital and how we govern our insurance companies to make sure that we protect you, while providing a return to our shareholders.
