Tower Ltd. to spin off wealth management unit.

Australian specialty insurer and wealth-management company Tower Ltd. said it will spin off its wealth-management business in Australia through a separate listing on the Australian Stock Exchange, as the group continues to reassess its strategic position following a successful turnaround in the first half of the year.

Tower said the proposed spinoff of the Australian wealth-management operations, known by the brands Brides and Tower Trust, was the result of a "strategic review of its business portfolio." Through the spin-off, Tower stockholders would retain an ownership interest in the separate business.
