Sun Life reports Q1 earnings of 513 million revenue of 38 billion

by Alexandra Posadzki, The Canadian Press Posted May 8, 2013 4:08 pm MDT Sun Life reports Q1 earnings of $513 million, revenue of $3.8 billion AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Sun Life Financial Inc. (TSX:SLF) reported a profit of $513 million for its latest quarter as it worked to lower risk and expand its geographic footprint in Asia amid stagnant interest rates.The profit which amounted to 85 cents per share was down from $686 million or $1.15 per share a year ago, but still ahead of analyst expectations.Sun Life said its operating earnings for the quarter were 94 cents per share, well ahead of the 66 cents that had been expected by analysts.Total revenue was $3.8 billion, compared with $3.2 billion a year ago.Sun Life, which reported its earnings after its annual meeting Wednesday, said its results were helped by its growth strategy and by higher equity markets for the quarter.Chief executive Dean Connor said the company’s insurance sales were up five per cent and wealth sales were up 16 per cent.“Sun Life is off to a strong start in 2013,” Connor said in a statement.“Our results reflect strong execution against our four pillar strategy, including product and distribution enhancements over the past year, and more favourable market conditions”In December, Sun Life signed a deal to sell its U.S. variable annuity life insurance unit for US$1.35 billion to Delaware Life Holdings.Excluding that business the company said it earned an operating profit of from continuing operations of $448 million compared with $437 million a year ago.Connor told the company’s annual meeting that relations between Ottawa and Asian governments are crucial to the success of Canadian insurance companies.He called on Canada to work with Asian governments to create a level playing field where Canadian insurers will be able to compete with local companies.To help reduce risk, Sun Life stopped selling individual life insurance and annuities in the U.S. in January of last year.In Canada, the insurance company, which is the third largest in the country, adjusted prices, changed its product mix and de-risked products.“These changes … mean we can support our 2013 sales with one-half the capital that we needed in 2011,” Connor said.In January, the company teamed with Khazanah Nasional Berhad to purchase 98 per cent of a Malaysian life insurance company from its two current owners, which include British insurance group Aviva PLC.During the annual general meeting Sun Life was questioned about compensation for executives, after information filed in March showed Connor earned nearly $8 million in total compensation last year.Chairman James Sutcliffe said Sun Life’s compensation practices have been deemed appropriate by the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance.“The way we believe it’s best done is the directors retain responsibility for executive compensation and executive renumeration,” said Sutcliffe.“We’ve implemented the best practice to engage with shareholders and obtain direct feedback, because we are very interested in what people think. And certainly if there’s a specific point that the questioner wants to raise, we’d be delighted to hear it.” read more

Rights of older people celebrated as historic UN Declaration turns 70

The theme of this year’s International Day is “Celebrating Older Human Rights Champions.” As well as promoting the rights of the elderly overall, and raising the visibility of their contribution to society, the 2018 theme aims to reflect on the progress and challenges in ensuring their rights and freedoms, and engage broad audiences across the world, to mobilize human rights for all.Today, almost 700 million people are over the age of 60, a number predicted to rise to 2 billion – more than a fifth of the global population – by 2050. Asia will be the region with the largest number of older persons, and Africa is facing the largest proportionate growth.This means that the needs and challenges of the ageing world population, and the essential contribution that older men and women can make to society, if adequate guarantees are in place, must be given greater attention.Political attention on the subject has been growing since 2002, when the UN General Assembly endorsed the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing, described as a turning point in how the world addresses the key challenges of “building a society for all ages.”More specifically, the Plan contained guidance on the right to work; and the right to health, participation and equality of opportunity throughout life; stressing the importance of the participation of older persons in decision-making processes at all levels.The last decade has seen progress in several areas, with the social sector taking centre stage. This includes innovative policies in the health, social security or welfare systems, national plans of action on ageing and the creation of new institutions to seek ways of gradually responding to the challenges faced by older persons.A special event to commemorate the 2018 International Day of Older Persons is taking place on Monday at the UN office in Geneva, followed by an Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) session at UN Headquarters in New York on Thursday, to be attended by María Fernanda Espinosa Garcés, President of the General Assembly. read more

Brock collection shows Canadas rich history of welcoming refugees

Even before Canada was an independent nation, it was welcoming political refugees from America.At the time of the American Revolution (1775-1783), some Loyalist Americans who supported King George III found themselves in danger. Property was destroyed, land was confiscated and the threat of mob violence loomed in many areas.With these pressures and the desire to remain under British rule, many Loyalists immigrated to other countries within the Empire.These refugees became known as the United Empire Loyalists (UEL) and those who came to Canada, including about 5,000 who settled in Niagara, helped shape the development of the future nation. For the past 15 years, a group of descendants from the UEL have been working to ensure that the history of the Loyalists in Canada can be studied at Brock. In 2002, Edward Scott, Beverly and Rodney Craig, William Smy and Noreen Stapley formed the Friends of the Loyalist Collection at Brock University (FOTLCABU) with the intent to help the Special Collections and Archives acquire primary and secondary source materials on the UEL.Funding began with a donation from the Lincoln & Welland Foundation and continued when Smy allowed the proceeds from his book, An Annotated Nominal Roll of Butler’s Rangers with Documentary Sources, to go towards the campaign. Contributions have also been received over the years by the United Empire Loyalist Association of Canada and some of its branches, as well as private donors.About $50,000 has been raised to date, with the money used in several ways.Much of the official documentation of the UEL migration to Canada can be found in national, provincial and state archives across Canada, England and the United States.The FOTLCABU identified the most important collections available and ordered microfilm copies for Brock. More than 500 films have been purchased.Whenever a noteworthy book on the Loyalists was published, the Friends acquired it for the collection. The Friends recently funded the digitization of the entire Woodruff Family archival collection, which was designated as significant cultural property to Canada in 2015.The Woodruffs came to Niagara shortly after the revolution, married into a Loyalist family and quickly became a political and economic power in Niagara and Ontario.The records can now be viewed on the Special Collections website.In December 2016, the Friends helped the University, now one of the key repositories for Loyalist resources in Canada, acquire the original records of the Bradt and Field Loyalist families.The Loyalists were not simply a mass of former immigrants from the United Kingdom.  They were a multi-national, multi-ethnic and multi-religious group from all social and economic classes who preferred to live under the laws of the British Empire.They helped settle and populate British North America, what would later become Canada, in its most formative years. The original refugees and their children defended their new home against the Americans during the War of 1812.  The Loyalists became the politicians and business people who shaped Canada’s government and economy.Without the United Empire Loyalists, Canada may not be the nation it is today.For more information, visit the Friends of the Loyalist Collection website.

LETTER City Constabulary should stop harassing Cuban shoppers

Dear Editor,It has been observed that in recent times in downtown Georgetown, some members of the City Constabulary have begun a campaign of harassing Cuban shoppers.Now that they can hardly get a dollar out of vendors whom they have harassed for years, due to those vendors saying enough is enough and due to the massive reduction in their profit margins, many wayward constables are now pestering Cubans, demanding to see their passports to determine whether they were legally in Guyana. And if they accidentally drop a small piece of paper or the wrapper of a confectionery item they quickly pounce on them and shake them down. This is in spite of mountains of garbage all around them, created by ‘junkies’, but of course ‘junkies’ have no money to give them a bribe so they hardly bother with them.The City Constabulary Department of the Mayor and Councillors of the City of Georgetown has convinced itself that is has the same power as the national police (GPF) in the maintenance of law and order in this country. But these officers need to be told that they have no responsibility, jurisdiction nor authority over immigration in Guyana.Clearly, the Georgetown Municipality and their Constables fail to appreciate that the steady flow of nearly 1,000 Cubans coming to Guyana every week to shop mainly clothing is extremely good for our country’s economy at a time when there is much talk about sluggishness and over-reliance on gold to prop up revenues.The Cuban shoppers are helping to keep many businesses in Georgetown afloat and therefore if they were to get tired of the harassment by the City Constabulary and stop coming, it would leave Georgetown in pretty bad shape financially.What the Constabulary should be doing instead, is providing protection to the Cubans and other visitors from the roving criminals in our capital.SincerelyShanta Singh Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedCuban vendor shot in foiled robberySeptember 28, 2016In “Crime”Stabroek, Bourda Markets identified as ‘criminal hotspots’ – Chief ConstableJune 17, 2018In “Crime”Aunt of vendor killed by Constab Officer, others protest City HallJanuary 25, 2018In “latest news” read more

Fortnite developer leaks a 10 payout for securing account

Attacks on Forest staff continue

first_imgBhadradri- Kothagudem: With no end to the spate of attacks on forest officials in Telangana, the opposition parties are up in arms claiming that it was vote-bank politics of the TRS which was resulting in lack of control on party leaders who were indulging in attacks on men in uniform. It may be mentioned here that in the last three days, three attacks by podu farmers against forest officials had been reported. While forest officer C Anitha suffered grievous injuries on Sunday, TRS MLA Vanama Venkateswara Rao and his son lead the attack on forest officers on Monday and the same evening forest beat officer Bhasker and section officer Neelamaiah went to stop ploughing the forest lands by tribals at Thimmampet village in Mulkalpally mandal in the tribal district and remove the encroachment in compartment 344 in Gundlapadu reserve forest area. They had gone there without informing the police.

The forest officials rushed to the village and rescued the two from being attacked. The injured were immediately shifted to nearby hospital and provided necessary medical treatment. Based on a complaint lodged by the Forest department officials, Mulkapally police registered a case against the villagers and launched manhunt to nab the accused. District Superintendent of Police (SP) Sunil Dutt said that strict action would be taken against those involved in the attack on Forest officers.

The Minister told them that the government had taken a serious view of the issue and would take necessary measures to see that such incidents do not recur. Opposition wants CM KCR to act Hyderabad: Coming down heavily on Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for not taking enough action in containing attacks on forest officials, the opposition parties wanted the chief minister to punish the TRS leaders involved in the incidents. Telangana BJP senior leader Krishnasagar Rao on Tuesday said that it appears that the Chief Minister has lost control not only over state administration but also on the TRS party MLAs. Reacting to the spate of incidents of attack on forest officials in the last three days, Rao said the Chief Minister should explain why he was maintaining stoic silence on the attacks on forest officials. He wondered why the Heads of Departments were not responding to the attacks on the forest officials. He demanded that the government should resolve the problems of the Podu farmers. The Congress party also condemned the attack on the forest officers and demanded immediate stringent action not only against the villagers who were involved in incidents but also against the TRS leaders who led these attacks.last_img read more

Rattled Wall Street stock investors fret about a correction

first_imgA trader reacts as he watches screens on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange in New York on Feb 5, 2018.ReutersThe deepest one-day selloff in Wall Street stocks in eight months has investors using the market equivalent of a dirty word: “correction”.With traders spooked by rising U.S. Treasury yields and fears of a deepening U.S.-China trade conflict, the benchmark S&P 500 index on Wednesday dropped 3.29 percent, its worst one-day decline since February, bringing its loss to almost 5.0 percent since closing at a record high on Sept 20.Many investors define a stock market correction as a fall of at least 10 percent from a high, often as a reaction to excessive gains.”It’s probably the beginning of the correction,” said Oliver Pursche, vice chairman and chief market strategist at Bruderman Asset Management in New York.”It’s going to come down to earnings. The big concern isn’t really what third-quarter earnings numbers are, but really what the outlook for the fourth quarter and first quarters are.”Fears of a potential correction became more acute as the S&P 500 technology index plummeted 4.77 percent, the deepest one-session decline since 2011 for the sector behind much of the market’s gains in recent years.U.S. President Trump blamed the Federal Reserve, which he said has gone “crazy” raising interest rates.”Actually it’s a correction that we’ve been waiting for for a long time, but I really disagree with what the Fed is doing,” Trump told reporters before a political rally in Pennsylvania.Investors are worried about how aggressively the Fed will raise interest rates, and some are skeptical about whether the central bank will support markets the way it was seen to have done under previous Fed chairs.A stock market downturn hitting voters’ retirement savings would be inopportune for Trump and the Republican party ahead of U.S. midterm elections on November 6.The S&P 500 index fell 10 percent in early February from a high the previous month, raising fears that a decade-old bull market was ending.However, fueled by the deep corporate tax cuts passed by the Trump administration last year and an expanding economy, Wall Street deftly recovered. It racked up a 2018 gain of nearly 10 percent in late September, until soaring 10-year U.S. Treasury bond yields and trade policy related worries sent investors fleeing for safety.”When interest rates go up it can throw a cold towel on an overheating economy, and that’s what it looks like is happening now,” said Sandy Villere, a portfolio manager at Villere & Co in New Orleans.U.S. stocks are widely considered to be in the longest ever bull market, which started in March 2009, when investors grappled with the global financial crisis that had vaporized over half of the U.S. stock market’s value.Since then, the S&P500 index has more than quadrupled, and many investors have been debating when, not if, the run-up in stock prices would end.”The market has been on a 10-year bull run and we have seldom seen a 10 percent correction during that time. Every time we get around that number, markets come rallying back. What’s different now is that the 10-year bond yield is much higher. I think we’re getting an overdue correction in the market,” said Trip Miller, managing partner at Gullane Capital Partners in Memphis.HINGES ON EARNINGSWhether the S&P 500 index slides into a prolonged downturn may hinge on what companies say about their outlooks when they report their quarterly results in coming weeks.Analysts expect aggregate S&P 500 earnings per share to surge 21 percent, year over year, in the September quarter and 20 percent in the December quarter, according to I/B/E/S data from Refinitiv.But in 2019, deep corporate tax cuts that started in 2018 will be a year old, and companies are unlikely to repeat the same strong earnings growth they saw this year. Earnings repatriated from abroad this year as part of the tax overhaul may lead to fewer big increases in stock buybacks next year.Executives on quarterly earnings call will also provide details about how they expect Trump’s trade conflict with China to affect their businesses.September consumer price data due on Thursday might fuel worries that the Fed may raise interest rates more aggressively than previously thought.”The market is digesting the potential that rates moving upwards eventually seep into the real economy in the form of mortgage rates, auto rates, student lending rates,” said Mona Mahajan, U.S. investment strategist at Allianz Global Investors in New York. “What we’re seeing here is the market positioning for potential lower growth going forward.”last_img read more

Power price hike again

first_img.Electricity prices are going up again. The Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) has completed scrutinising the proposals submitted by the concerned companies. The proposals are from an increase of up to 15 per cent per unit of electricity at a wholesale level and from 6 to 14 per cent for subscribers.A public hearing on the proposal will commence from 25 September. According to the BERC act of 2003, the commission will declare its decision within 90 working days of the public hearing. In the six years between 1 March 2010 and 1 September 2015, the price of electricity has increased five times at a wholesale level and seven times for retail subscribers.Energy advisor of the Consumers Association of Bangladesh (CAB) M Shamsul Alam has told Prothom Alo that there is no justification for increasing the price of power now. After all, the government is not following BERC’s directives to produce power at low costs. On the contrary, it is stepping up furnace-oil-fired power generation at a higher cost. Even if the furnace oil was supplied to all the power plants at the market price, production costs would decrease considerably. But that isn’t being done either. The effort to reduce system loss and increase profits is also ineffective. Had these steps been taken, then there would be no need to increase power prices. In fact, it would be possible to reduce the cost of electricity.According to BERC officials, the Power Development Board (PDB) has proposed an increase of 72 paisa per unit of electricity (almost 15 per cent) to be sold wholesale to the distribution companies. And the various distribution companies have proposed a 6 to 14 per cent increase in retail price of electricity per unit to be sold to the subscribers.The distribution companies said that every time the price of electricity has been increased less at a retail level than wholesale. This makes it difficult to run the companies.However, a review of the proposals submitted to BERC by the distribution companies reveals that of the six companies, only the Rural Electrification Board (REB) is recording losses. The four that are making profits are the PDB distribution zone, Dhaka Power Distribution Company (DPDC), Dhaka Electric Supply Company (DESCO), and West Zone Power Distribution Company Limited (WZPDCL).The North-West Zone Power Distribution Company Limited (NWZPDCL) has been newly formed. This company started operating in October last year. For the first time it has approached BERC regarding PDB’s Rajshahi and Rangpur Zone assets and liabilities.In PDB’s proposal to increase wholesale prices, it was said that expenditure in supplying per unit of electricity to the power distribution companies is Tk 5.59. But the price fixed at present in Tk 4.87 per unit. It is necessary to increase the price by 72 paisa to close the gap as it will not be possible for PDB to arrange the funds.At a subscriber level, DPDC has proposed an increase of 6.24 per cent, DESCO 6.34 per cent, WZPDCL 10.36 per cent, REB 10.75 per cent and PDB 14.5 per cent. A few distribution companies have reportedly asked for an increase in demand charge and service charges at a subscriber level. Presently the companies charge up till Tk 30 per meter as demand charge and up to Tk 20 as service charge.Concerning the proposal for a price hike by the profit-making companies, BERC member (power) Mohammed Mizanur Rahman said, the profits and losses of the companies will be made public at the hearing and BERC will decide accordingly. It is not that the prices will be hiked simply is they propose it.However, PDB sources said that the price of gas used for power generation has been increased. Many power plants are also having to purchase furnace oil at higher costs. As a result, production costs are higher than the sales price. That is why there is no alternative but to increase prices.According to CAB and private sector experts, there is an effective alternative to raising prices and that is supplying furnace oil at the market price. Presently the per unit price of electricity produced with furnace oil at the market price is around Tk 6. The power plants which have been given furnace oil import licences by the government, are selling electricity to the government at this rate.On the other hand, the per unit cost electricity of the power plants purchasing furnace oil from the Petroleum Corporation (BPC) at the price fixed by the government, is Tk 12 higher.  The international market price of furnace oil at present is between Tk 22 to Tk 24 per litre, but BPC sells this at Tk 42.Power price hike at a glanceDate                              Wholesale                      Subscriber1 March 2010                                                           5%1 February 2011                   11%                            5%1 August 2011                   6.66%1 December 2011               16.79%                      13.25%1 February 2012                14.37%                        7.09%1 September 2012              16.92%                          15%February 2014                                                       6.96%   (announced on 13 March)             1 September 2015                                                    2.9%last_img read more

Of love and despair

first_imgBegum Akhtar, born in 1914, is a classic example of how personal tragedy is often that differentiating edge between a great performer and a truly exceptional one. Witty, vibrant, and engaging with the world at various levels, here was a remarkable woman who took life head-on, and by many accounts, perhaps a bit recklessly. She braved on regardless, driven by a deep inner quest to pursue love in its purest form, as an end in itself; be it in music or in life. Today her name is almost synonymous with the concept of ghazal gayaki, and her imitable style of singing which immortalised her, and gave her the title of Mallika-e-Ghazal (Queen of Ghazal). Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’As the whole country gears up to celebrate her birth centenary, Kolkata cannot be left behind where Begum had home. Elocutionist and theatre artiste Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee shall present a cultural ensemble on 31 October  at Padatik Theatre, evoking memories of the legendary singer through ghazals and also interesting snippets of her life and times through dramatised readings.Eminent personalities like broadcaster Kishore Bhimani, PR veteran Rita Bhimani, theatre personalities Dolly Basu, Sanchayita Bhattacharya, Nivedita Bhattacharya, Mahmud Alam and Ghazal singer Jayati Bhattacharya and many others shall be a part of this event. The premise of the show has been inspired by the biography of Begum Akhtar written by her student Padmashree Vidushi Rita Ganguly. The show is being supported by Turning Point, Addlife Caring Minds, SREI and Phreedom 4 Ever. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixAs Rita Ganguly, a student and companion Begum Akhtar puts it in her book Ae Mohabbat… Reminiscing Begum Akhtar, ‘Her taseer (soulful sound) was the result of years of loneliness, pain, suppression and silence’. Her forte was not necessarily the audibility of her music, for she had a defective area where her voice cracked at a high-pitch, with a limited one-octave range, but she turned it into her virtue for she knew how to mould her voice. The much loved classical diva of 20th century India Akhtaribai Faizabadi, or Begum Akhtar was the last of the great female singers from the courtesan (tawaif) community. Begum Akhtar effortlessly transcended that label to marry Barrister Ishtiaq Ahmed Abbassi of Lucknow.  Ganguly, said, ‘I really admire Sujoy as a sperforming artist and the show he is curating on my Ustad speaks volumes about her inseparable bond with the city where she has been an icon as well.Where : Padatik Theatre, Kolkata When: 31Octoberlast_img read more

ASEAN-India summit meetings in 2002; the conclusion in 2004 of a partnership for peaceprogress and shared prosperity are only some of the milestones Others can also be identified and named This policy has had all the characteristics of bipartisanship which is one of the strengths of Indian democracy and the Indian political system when it addresses central issues of national importance… Over the next decade our Look East policyand further changes in the Indian economywill take place in an environment which would be in considerableif not completecontrast to a unipolar universe A key imperative of Indian foreign policy has been to secure an environment in which we can face up to the central challenges of nation-building This includes addressing the persistence of mass poverty in Indiasubstantially upgrading our administrative delivery systems and infrastructure not just to sustain a high rate of economic growthbut also to improve substantially access to education and health services A continued integration with the world economy is also essential for us to achieve as much as possible in the attainment of these national development goals in as short a time span as possible… A Look East policyor an integrated Southeast and East Asia policynecessarily requires a maritime perspective of and from India In cartographic termswe need to look at ourselves not as if we are only looking down from the Himalayas to the Indian Oceanbut rather down from the peninsula towards the Himalayas Such a cartographic inversion is by no means easy We cannot disregard our continental compulsionswhether to the northwestthe northor the northeast Neverthelesswe have to balance these compulsions with a maritime perspective in which our southern peninsula equally becomes the heart and mind of our foreign policy I would like to imagine that this maritime perspective is now embedded in our foreign policy thinking I will however readily grant the point to a sceptic that it needs to be even more deeply embedded A maritime perspective necessarily means sea power but I do not imply by this just the need for a strong navy It is rather a web of economiccommercial and political ties with the countries in Southeast Asia and North Asiaas well as the wider Pacific communitythat we have to reach out to This perspectivein factmeans also returning to our roots in ancient maritime history the Mauryasthe Chalukyasthe Cholas and other kingdoms and dynasties who were flourishing maritime entities… It is my view and conviction that in the next decade or two we will see a full flowering of this maritime perspective in India with its attendant scholarship and also retrieving from the annals of history our ancient and historical links with the countries of Southeast Asia and beyond It has become a truism almost to speak about the shift of power to Asia I doubt that anyone would seriously question the fact of this seismic shift or that its main driver has been the rapid economic growth in Chinaand in the tiger economies of Southeast Asia and now for the past decade rapid growth in the Indian economy I would however like to dwell on what is happening within Asia even as this overall shift of economicpolitical and financial power takes place from the west to the east Evidently there is a reconfiguration within Asia also underway and we have to see and juxtapose southsoutheastnorth and north-east Asia… In the case of the India-China interface the problem is more complexsince that interface comprises both a very direct maritimeand also continentaldimension Notwithstanding our benign engagement over the centuriesthe second half of the 20th century casts a very long shadow Howeverwhat one also discerns are positive possibilities that emerge from the maritime interface in its widest possible sense economicpoliticalcultural and religiousbetween India and Chinaas these offer grounds for deepening and strengthening our bilateral relations This process will reduce the relative weightage of the considerable intractability of our continental interface The fact that we are together in important groupings such as the East Asia Summit or the ADMM+ mechanisms is itself a very important positive development In this perspective a continued expansion of the China-India economic relationshipand expansion in culturalscholarly and people to people tiesalong with a candid political relationship are necessaryfor difficulties can reasonably be expected from time to time… Myanmar and the northeastern states of India are together the bridge between South and Southeast Asia That bridge needs special focus and concerted attention It is a vital strategic lynchpin which can transform our economies India and ASEAN together have the
