Prudential Hong Kong is ‘core’ subsidiary in next 2 years – S&P Global Ratings

The Hong Kong subsidiary is seen to contribute 15% to 20% CAGR to the parent company.

S&P Global Ratings forecasts a stable outlook for Prudential Hong Kong, supported by Prudential PLC's brand, risk framework, and long-term commitment. The parent company supports in various aspects, including product design, asset management, capital support, and technology enablement, the ratings agency identified.

The forecast reflects expectations of Prudential Hong Kong remaining a core subsidiary of its parent group over the next two years.

Despite pandemic-related challenges, Prudential Hong Kong is expected to contribute significantly to the group's new business profit target of 15%-20% CAGR between 2022 and 2027.

PHKL's recovery post-mobility restrictions reaffirms its position as the largest contributor to the parent group's new business profit. 

Serving Hong Kong customers and acting as a gateway for mainland Chinese visitors, PHKL sold 67% of new policies to this segment in the first nine months of 2023.

Possible rating downgrades for PHKL could occur if its importance to Prudential PLC diminishes due to sustained declines in earnings prospects or significant shifts in the parent group's strategic focus, though such scenarios are considered unlikely in the next two years.
