    Prudential says first-half profit up 8%; warns of persistent COVID woes

    HONG KONG (Reuters) -Prudential Plc posted on Wednesday a rise of 8% in its first-half operating profit, but the Asia-focused insurer warned of challenging conditions for the rest of the year as COVID curbs persist in some markets. Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations of the London and Hong Kong dual-listed company was $1.66 billion for the period, up from $1.57 billion a year earlier, it said in a statement. "We achieved stronger APE sales growth in the second quarter as conditions started to normalise in most markets," the group's chief executive, Mark FitzPatrick, said in the statement, referring to sales recovery from disruptions due to COVID-19.

    Kenya in deal to set up East Africa's first carbon offset exchange

    Kenya on Monday opened the Nairobi International Financial Centre (NIFC), with a goal of attracting investment of more than $2 billion by 2030, and of setting up East Africa's first carbon exchange. Singapore's AirCarbon Exchange (ACX), which will develop the carbon exchange, said it will trade certified carbon offsets to help Kenya to finance environmental projects, including reforestation and land restoration, as it seeks to meet its climate commitments. "The carbon exchange will be an important element in Kenya's sustainable finance ecosystem," Kevin Iwanaga, president and chief operating officer – Middle East and Africa for ACX, said in a statement.
