Why Canadian insurers are wary of covering medical marijuana
Posted on Jul 13, 2018 (9 days ago)
Sun Life Financial, Canada's No. 2 insurer, recently started covering medical marijuana in its Canadian health insurance plan - more than 17 years after the country first legalized it.

Asia is a battleground for foreign insurers including Aviva, Prudential Plc and Sun Life who are attracted by the region's lower insurance penetration levels and faster growth rates for insurance premiums. "We are bullish on not just the insurance business (in Asia), but wealth management and asset management as well," Dean Connor told Reuters, adding the company's post-tax profits of about C$450 million ($337.94 million) in Asia could double over five years.
