Adjusted operating income

Prudential Financial’s (PRU) Gibraltar Life and Other operations reported a rise in adjusted operating income from $389.0 million in 3Q16 to $426.0 million in 3Q17. This trend implies an increase of $37.0 million, which includes the net positive effect related to currency fluctuations.

When this effect is excluded, adjusted operating income rose $36.0 million. This increase was due to favorable momentum in the business and a decline in its net expenses.

However, positive momentum reflected in the policyholder experience is another major reason for the rise.
