M&G plc is a leading savings and investments business which was formed in 2017 through the merger of Prudential plc’s UK and Europe savings and insurance operation and M&G, its wholly-owned international investment manager.
In March 2018, Prudential plc announced its intention to demerge the company with a premium listing on the London Stock Exchange.
As an independent company, M&G plc has a single corporate identity and continues with two customer-facing brands; Prudential for savings and insurance customers in the UK and Europe and for asset management in South Africa and M&G Investments for asset management clients globally.
In the UK, we manage £51 billion of savings on behalf of Prudential customers, many of whom invest in our PruFund range of funds, which smooths some of the extreme short term ups and downs of the stock market. We also offer face-to-face advice to UK customers through our Prudential Financial Planning service, which now has 400 advisers across the country.
Under the M&G Investments brand, we offer asset management products and strategies to retail asset management and institutional clients in 28 markets. Our investment capabilities span the range of asset classes from cash to government bonds, corporate credit, multi-asset and equities. We also manage £57 billion of private assets, including bank loans, infrastructure and real estate.
