They have operations in London, Hong Kong, and the US. The Brexit situation and issues in Hong Kong have allowed for a great entry point. They are spinning off the UK asset management business, that will create a special dividend payout later this year. Yield 2.29% (Analysts’ price target is $22.01)

Would there be an opportunity to buy taking advantage of the weakness on the British Pound in case there is a hard Brexit? The financial services industry in the UK has taken a pounding but still thinks there are better places to be. He wouldn't comment on Brexit (even though he think there won't be one) and he wouldn't allowed currencies to influence his investment decisions.

Largest life insurer in the UK. Kind of a household name there. About half of its business is derived from Asia with the 2nd largest portion being from the US and a 3rd from the UK. This is a growth company, not a maximized dividend payout type, because the focus is on Asia. Good combination of defensiveness, cash generation and growth. The upside potential outweighs the downside risk.

Insurance company based in the UK. Have old legacy business, which is slow growing, as well as a business in the US plus a high growth business in Asia, which is insurance and wealth management. The Asian business is effectively the story. Strong balance sheet. 2.7% yield. There is a rumour that they may spin off the US asset which would create some big upside.
