(Reuters) - Britain's Prudential plans to break up its 10 billion pound British pensions annuities book into four parts, in a move that could see the insurer leave its domestic market, Sky News said.

The company has contacted potential buyers in the last few weeks, Sky News said on Monday. http://bit.ly/2h6AcRL

The portfolio would be divided into four parts of between 2-3 billion pounds each, Sky said citing a person briefed on the insurer's plans.

Rothesay Life, Legal & General and Pension Insurance Corporation were potential buyers according to the media report.

A spokesman for Prudential said the insurer does not "comment on market rumour and speculation".
