Distributable Profits Generation

Distributable profits are defined as the sum of the profit released by the business and the release of the required capital set aside to support it.

The following table (extract from the EV movement table) shows the generation of distributable profits during 2013, stemming from the new business written during the year and the portfolio already in force at the end of 2012. The table reports both the expected amount of 2013 distributable profit (calculated at the beginning of the year using "real-world" best estimate financial assumptions) and its actual realisation, where the positive impact of economic variances is particularly evident on the higher release of required capital.

  Profit Req. Capital release  Distributable profit

In-force business 2,204
Total expected distributable profit 1,343
Operating and economic variances 19
Total actual distributable profit 1,3621,7273,089

The following tables show the expected future emergence of undiscounted distributable profits stemming from the portfolio in force at year-end 2013 (i.e. excluding future new business) and from the new business written in 2013, again estimated using "real-world" best estimate assumptions.
