Largest lifeco in the US. Very good opportunity to buy a great franchise at a very low price on a very low earnings base. Getting back to their core business and shying away from some of the more riskier stuff. Sees strong prospects for growth in emerging markets. Really represents an attractive stock in this low interest-rate environment and basically a free call option on any sort of normalization on long-term interest rates.

Insurance companies are trading meaningfully below what their balance sheets say. Business is under stress with low interest rates.

Insurance companies have been tarred with the same brush as many of the other financials. What he doesn't like about this company is that 90% of the revenues come out of the US and only about 11% is international. He would prefer something like Manulife (MFC-T).
