September 7, 2023; Prudential Financial, Inc. and Warburg Pincus today announced the launch of Prismic Life Reinsurance, Ltd.

Second Quarter 2023 Results
August 1, 2023; Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE: PRU) today reported second quarter results. Net income attributable to Prudential Financial, Inc. was $511 million ($1.38 per Common share) for the second quarter of 2023, compared to a net loss of $1.010 billion ($2.71 per Common share) for the second quarter of 2022. After-tax adjusted operating income was $1.087 billion ($2.94 per Common share) for the second quarter of 2023, compared to $895 million ($2.34 per Common share) for the second quarter of 2022.
PGIM, the Company’s global investment management business, reported adjusted operating income of $179 million for the second quarter of 2023, compared to $206 million in the year-ago quarter. This decrease primarily reflects lower asset management fees, driven by net outflows and rising rates, and higher expenses, partially offset by higher other related revenues, driven by higher seed and co-investment income.
PGIM assets under management of $1.266 trillion were up 1% from the year-ago quarter, primarily resulting from equity market appreciation, partially offset by higher interest rates and net outflows. Third-party net outflows of $5.2 billion in the current quarter were driven primarily by redemptions from public equity strategies and reflect institutional outflows of $3.0 billion and retail outflows of $2.2 billion.
U.S. Businesses reported adjusted operating income of $956 million for the second quarter of 2023, compared to $573 million in the year-ago quarter.

Excluding these items, current quarter results primarily reflect higher net investment spread results and more favorable underwriting results, partially offset by lower net fee income.
Retirement Strategies, consisting of Institutional Retirement Strategies and Individual Retirement Strategies, reported adjusted operating income of $876 million for the second quarter of 2023, compared to $2.181 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Corporate & Other
Corporate & Other reported a loss, on an adjusted operating income basis, of $527 million for the second quarter of 2023, compared to a loss of $321 million in the year-ago quarter.
