HONG KONG -- Asia-focused insurer Prudential's next chief executive would eventually be based in Hong Kong, but "challenging" COVID-19 restrictions could mean starting the job outside the financial hub, interim chief Mark FitzPatrick said Wednesday.

His comments come after Prudential said last month that its next CEO would be based in Asia for the first time without specifying Hong Kong, where more than half its senior management and operations are now based.
