Strategy

The Phoenix develops and updates medium-term plans to identify opportunities and risks, prioritize initiatives, and develop capabilities. The business strategy of the Phoenix is to (1) accelerate the growth of activities that generate high returns on equity including P&C insurance, asset management, and distribution; (2) lead the industry with innovation and technology to drive efficiency and service; (3) actively manage group activities to drive growth, capture synergies, and unlock and create value; and (4) optimize capital management and deployment across the group.

 

The Phoenix has adopted and publicly communicated this strategy and its key financial targets.
