BEIJING (Reuters) - British life insurance giant Prudential PRU.L and China's state-backed conglomerate CITIC Group 0267.HK have set up a joint venture asset management firm in Beijing, the city's financial authorities said on Thursday. The unit, Prudential-CITIC Asset Management Co, completed its business registration in Beijing on March 31, the Beijing Local Financial Supervision and Administration Bureau said in a statement, as the city continues to open up for foreign financial firms despite the coronavirus outbreak.
The unit was granted a business licence from China’s Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission (CBIRC) earlier this year with a registered capital of 500 million yuan, according to the CBIRC.
