On 21 October 2019 we completed the demerger of M & G plc from Prudential plc. Following the demerger, Prudential is an Asia-led Group focused on capturing opportunities in structural growth markets. We have a global portfolio of businesses, each of which is executing on meeting a large and growing consumer need. In Asia, the growing middle class needs to save more and protect themselves from ill-health. In the United States, the growing ageing population needs more access to secure retirement income. And we are operating in markets in Africa with a total population of almost 400 million people.
