Prudential’s group chief financial officer James Turner will step down from the board, effective from 1 January 2023.
The firm explained this is because it’s common practice in Asia for listed companies to not have chief financial officers as board members or non-executive directors.

Prudential has also had a board reshuffle with Philip Remnant stepping down as senior independent director after two years and Tom Watjen also leaving his non-executive directorship after five years.
