Prudential in Myanmar

Prudential's history in Myanmar dates back to 1923 when it first established its operations in the country. In 1935, it moved its head office into 104 Strand Road, a prominent colonial heritage buildings in Rangoon. In 1964, the government required that all private insurers close their operations and only the state-owned Myanma Insurance remained. In 2013, when the government re-opened the market, Prudential re-entered Myanmar with a representative office licence, the first European life insurer to do so.

Since establishing its representative office in 2013, Prudential has been involved in various capacity building initiatives in Myanmar. These include the sharing of insurance-related technical knowledge at numerous forums and workshops.

Key topics covered include:


  • Insurance regulatory/supervisory regimes (in Asia and global markets)
  • Corporate governance best practices
  • Product development & actuarial seminars
  • Emerging trends in technology and digitalisation in life insurance.

Prudential also co-sponsored and participated in the inaugural World Savings Day Forum in Yangon in November 2018.

Prudential has also been active in the corporate social responsibility and community development space in Myanmar. The following are some of the key activities it has conducted in the past few years:
