How is Old Mutual’s “managed separation” going? Bruce Whitfield interviews Old Mutual Group Chief Executive Bruce Hemphill.

*Old Mutual investor? Did you receive a 'Shareholder Pack' in the post?

In 2016 Old Mutual plc announced a new strategy – the separation of its four underlying businesses in Africa, the UK and elsewhere.

The process is called a “managed separation”.

If the proposals to finalise the strategy are approved, then Old Mutual plc shareholders will receive shares in Old Mutual Limited, the new name of the African business, and Quilter plc, the new name of the UK business, in exchange for their existing shares.

Old Mutual also intends to distribute most of its Nedbank shares to shareholders.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Old Mutual Group Chief Executive Bruce Hemphill.

Whitfield asked Hemphill to give an update on the “conscious uncoupling” (apologies to Gwyneth Paltrow).

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

We’re in the final straight… We have two more fences to cross…

Bruce Hemphill

We don’t see any obstacles… We’ve had long discussions with the institutional investors… We’re comfortable that, from a shareholder perspective, we’ll be fine.

Bruce Hemphill

There should be quite a significant uplift in value… We’re going to reduce debt, operating costs…

Bruce Hemphill

Our shareholders voted to support the reappointment of KPMG…

Bruce Hemphill

If you are going to expand globally… you’ve really got to understand the environment… it’s really tough…
