British life insurer Pru Life UK’s fund manager, Eastspring Investments, has been named the largest Retail Manager in Asia (ex-Japan, Australia and New Zealand) [“region”] in the annual Asia Asset Management Fund Manager Survey 2012, with US$42.5 billion of retail assets sourced in the region as of June 30, 2012.

Eastspring Investments is the asset management arm of London-based Prudential plc in Asia, managing over US$90.5 billion of assets globally. It has been managing Pru Life UK’s underlying funds for its unit-linked or investment-linked product portfolio since the company pioneered the PruLink product line in 2002 with the peso and dollar bond funds and managed funds. Pru Life UK remains the market leader in the unit-linked space, which has been credited as one of the growth drivers in the local life industry.

Asia Asset Management was established in 1995 and is the longest-running publication to comprehensively cover the Asian asset management industry. It is circulated in the Asia Pacific, North America and Europe.

"This underpins our Asia strength and is an important independent recognition of our size, strength and capabilities as we continue to grow the business," said Eastspring Investments Chief Executive Graham Mason.

“This accomplishment shows that the consumer knows who to trust. In the Philippines market, our funds have consistently performed in good and bad times, and we are backed by the top-in-class performance of our fund managers. With the expertise of Prudential and Eastspring Investments, we consistently improve and strengthen our unit-linked portfolio, and therefore Pru Life UK is likewise, in top class position. You can expect bigger and better things to come from our company in the very near future,” says Mr. Antonio de Rosas, President and CEO of Pru Life UK.
