Prudential Launches 4 Sub-Funds In Hong Kong

Prudential Asset Management today announced its entrance into Hong Kong's retail funds market with the launch of its first four retail sub-funds, the M&G Global Basics Fund, M&G Global Leaders Fund, M&G Pan European Fund, and the M&G American Fund.

The launch signals the latest stage of development for Prudential's asset management business in Asia, which has operated in the Hong Kong market since 1994. The Hong Kong launch follows the sub-funds' previous introduction to retail investors in Singapore, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Malaysia where they attracted significant interest with inflows exceeding $760 million over eight months to 31 August 2007.

"We are launching our retail presence in Hong Kong by introducing some of our core funds to the market." Guy Strapp, Regional Head of Investment Management said about the launch, "These funds have a history of consistent performance and will provide Hong Kong investors with access to global equity markets to help diversify investment portfolios."

Prudential Asset Management (Hong Kong) Limited is a subsidiary of Prudential plc (United Kingdom). Its insurance operations span 12 markets, Mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

With $66 billion in assets under management, it is the only foreign asset manager in the top 5 position in more than one Asian market.
