Presentation

Cheick Tidjane Thiam

Good morning and welcome to our Half Year 2012 Results Presentation. And I'll start -- since I specialize in bad jokes, I'm going to start with my Olympics joke, which is that, "Thank god, there's only 3 million Jamaicans." I checked, it's at least 2.9 million, 2,889,000. Can you imagine what it would be if there were more of them? But anyways, it's great.

So Prudential has produced a strong performance during the last 6 months and is on track to deliver on our 2013 "Growth and Cash" objectives, which we set ourselves at our first investor seminar in 2010. I would like to begin by setting the agenda of this meeting. We will follow the usual format. I will start with the highlights of our results for the first half and will comment on a few key aspects of our strategy, with a focus on Asia. I will hand it over to Nic, who will cover our financial performance in more detail, and I'll come back again to talk about our outlook for the rest of the year, and we will then take your questions. Members of our executive team from across the world are dialed into this results presentation. Barry is on the phone. And collectively, we will try to answer any questions that you may have.
