LONDON, Aug 12 (Reuters) - British insurer and asset manager
M&G recorded a 57% fall in first-half operating profit

pandemic.

Adjusted operating profit was expected to come in at 299
million pounds, according to a company-supplied consensus poll.

Assets under management and administration totalled 339
billion pounds at end-June, against a forecast 329 billion.

M&G saw net outflows in savings and asset management of 4.1
billion pounds in the six months to end-June.
