Prudential, AIA consider offers for SCB's insurance unit interest, Reuters says

AIA Group and Prudential are among insurers weighing making an offer to purchase at least 49% of the $3B insurance unit of Thai lender Siam Commercial Bank, Reuters reports, citing people with direct knowledge of the matter. A successful stake sale in SCB Life Assurance Public Company would make it one of Southeast Asia's largest insurance transactions in history, the report says. The sale process is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2016, though insurers have initiated preliminary discussions with potential advisers for prospective bids, the report says.

Prudential plc has reached good entry point, says Bernstein
Bernstein says that two uncertainties related to Prudential - its Solvency II data and the Department of Labor's fiduciary rules - have been resolved. The firm says that the Solvency II data was "robust," while the fiduciary rules will probably lead to a decline in variable annuity inflows, which the firm says is already reflected in its estimates for Prudential. Bernstein is upbeat on Prudential's exposure to the Asian life insurance market and says that the stock's low valuation creates a compelling entry point.
