Manulife CEO Donald Guloien said they delivered strong underlying sales growth, achieved all-time records in a number of our businesses, won new bank distribution deals in Asia, produced excellent investment results, reduced the impact of market swings through hedging, and received important approvals for Long-Term Care price increases.
"Looking forward, we expect to see a slowing in Japan insurance sales due to price increases we have implemented, and basis changes in the third quarter will likely be negative," Guloien added.
