Their plan would be to keep Prudential’s flagship Asian business and offload the UK to a buyer such as Resolution founder Clive Cowdery.But Barrie Cornes, an analyst at Panmure Gordon, said: “It’s unlikely in the short-to-medium term that there would be a break-up of the Pru. It’s more likely these investors would be looking to take a stake if they think the shares are cheap.”Another analyst said the news may have been leaked in an attempt to drive down the flotation price of AIA, which several Far Eastern funds are understood to be keen to support as cornerstone investors.
