Key Highlights

In January 2015, the Manufacturers Life Insurance Company, a subsidiary of Manulife Financial Corporation, acquired Standard Life Financial Inc. and Standard Life Investments Inc.

Life companies in Canada are exposed to persistent low interest rates, which are expected to reduce returns on new investments, including the reinvestment of maturing assets.

According to a survey by Great-West Life Assurance Company in July 2015, 46% of the total Canadian population did not plan for retirement; this offers opportunities for Canadian life insurers.

The life segment is sufficiently capitalized, with the three largest life insurers ranking among the world's top 15 in terms of stock market capitalization.

In July 2015, the Bank of Canada cut its benchmark interest rate to 0.5%, to stimulate economic recovery.
