NEWARK, N.J., October 17, 2018 - Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU) issued the following company statement after the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) announced today that it has voted to rescind Prudential’s designation as a nonbank systemically important financial institution:

“We are pleased with this decision, which affirms our longstanding belief that Prudential never met the standard for designation. This outcome reflects Prudential’s sustainable business model, capital strength and comprehensive risk management, which have and continue to enable us to fulfill our promises to our customers, deliver consistent performance and meet regulatory obligations.

“Prudential’s approach — working through the FSOC’s rigorous review process — resulted in the Council’s appropriate conclusion that Prudential does not pose systemic risk. We will continue to work with regulators to improve and strengthen the FSOC’s processes and other measures to help address potential risks to financial stability. We also will continue our engagement with the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance — in its expanded regulatory role as our group-wide supervisor — to ensure better, informed public policy outcomes that benefit our clients, customers and other stakeholders.”
