The newspaper suggests Adamson could be set to take up a role as a non-executive director at the insurer.
Adamson left the regulator in December ahead of the Davis inquiry into a bungled briefing given to the Daily Telegraph which led to insurers’ share prices tumbling in expectation of an investigation into high charging pensions.
The report revealed a catalogue of errors at the regulator.
Giving evidence to the Treasury select committee following the publication of the report, Adamson said: “This almost certainly was the most serious incident we’ve encountered in the FCA. I agree, one can only speculate about what might have happened if we had brought together people early, but it still took until 2.27pm to get the announcement out and I think we all regret that.”
Prudential’s full-year results are due tomorrow.
