    L&G sees double-digit cash growth at half year, performance on track

    LONDON (Reuters) -British insurer Legal & General expects to deliver double-digit growth in cash and capital generation in the first half of the year and its operating performance is on track, it said on Thursday. L&G's solvency ratio, a key measure of capital strength, rose to 215% at June 30, from 187% at end-Dec 2021, the life insurer said in a trading update. Legal & General Investment Management, one of the biggest investors in the UK stock market, saw net external inflows of 50 billion pounds ($59.72 billion) in the first half, compared with flows of 26 billion pounds over the same period a year earlier.

    Shareholder LGIM says has 'strong reservations' about Capricorn, Tullow merger

    LONDON (Reuters) -Legal & General Investment Management, a significant shareholder in Capricorn Energy and Tullow Oil, said on Monday it had "strong reservations" about a proposed merger between the two companies. Tullow and Capricorn agreed an all-share merger earlier this month in a deal worth around $827 million, paid for in newly issued Tullow shares. The deal, which needs shareholder approval from both groups, would create an Africa-focused producer of around 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day with a regular dividend, ending a payout drought for Tullow shareholders.
