Prudential Plc (PRU) may move its headquarters to Hong Kong from London, the Sunday Times reported, citing a review to be mentioned in the company’s annual report this week.
The move would be in response to the so-called European Solvency II regulations that increase capital requirements, the newspaper reported. The rules would force Prudential to dispose of 11 billion pounds ($17 billion) of U.K. assets, according to the newspaper.
