Prudential Plc, Britain’s second- biggest insurer by market value, said the company’s head of Asia, Barry Stowe, backed loans with shares in the insurer.
The Financial Services Authority said on Jan. 9 directors who use their own shares in the company as collateral must first get permission from the firm and make a public announcement. There was a two week amnesty period for the disclosures to be made ending today.
Stowe used 8,513.73 American depositary receipts, Prudential stock that trades on the New York stock exchange, to secure a loan on June. 3, the company said in a Regulatory News Service statement.
