TORONTO (Reuters) – Sun Life Financial (NYSE:) Inc, Canada’s second-biggest life insurer, on Wednesday beat analysts estimates for its third-quarter core profit, as higher insurance sales in the United States and Asia helped offset declining revenue from its wealth management business.
Underlying profit rose 5% from a year ago to C$949 million ($692.1 million) or C$1.62 per share in the three months ending Sept 30 versus consensus estimates to C$1.47.
