Great-West Lifeco Inc. (Lifeco) has announced its third quarter results

Irish Life generated strong results, contributing Euro €57 million (CAD$82 million) to Lifeco’s earnings in the third quarter. This represented a 50% increase, up from Euro €38 million (CAD$57 million) in the previous quarter.

The year to date contribution to Great-West Lifeco’s earnings from Irish Life is a total of Euro €129 million (CAD$191 million), demonstrating the strength of its position as Ireland’s largest life insurance and pension company.

During the third quarter Irish Life generated Euro €1.5 billion (CAD$2.1 billion) of sales and Euro €101 million (CAD$144 million) of Great-West Lifeco’s fee income.

“A highlight in the quarter was the launch of our new Irish Life Enhanced Annuity. This innovative product allows us to offer higher retirement income to people who have experienced poor health,” said Bill Kyle, Chief Executive Officer, Irish Life Group.

“We also celebrated 75 years of looking after the financial needs of our 1 million plus customers with a new brand and marketing campaign.  The associated national advertising campaign based on the concept We Know Irish life - We are Irish Life has been very well received,” Mr Kyle said.

The integration of Irish Life and Canada Life in the Irish market continues on schedule. To the end of September 2014, 88% of the expected synergies from the integration process had been achieved and 60% of the restructuring costs had been incurred.
