"Sun Life's strategy stood up well during the second quarter, delivering CAN$554 million in underlying net income and an 11.9% underlying ROE in the face of a challenging environment," said Dean Connor, President and Chief Executive Officer, Sun Life Financial.
"We made good progress at integrating our acquisitions announced last year; increased ownership in our Asian joint venture operations; and continued our investment in organic growth. Combined, these are reflected in a 26% increase in our insurance sales and a 3% increase in wealth sales."
"From the perspective of our clients, we continued to deliver strong medium and longer-term investment results in our asset management businesses; delivered claims and benefits payments of CAN$7.5 billion in the first six months of the year; rolled out new digital tools in Canada and Asia to make it easier to do business with us; and brought to our clients one of the broadest portfolios of ancillary group benefits in the US in the quarter, as we welcomed the Assurant clients this year," Connor said.
