Manulife – Standard Life Acquisition Cleared

Insurance giant Manulife Financial Corporation’s proposed acquisition of Standard Life PLC’s Canadian assets has been approved by the Competition Bureau. Both companies offer  group retirement and benefits services and individual wealth products, among other things. Despite this overlap, the Competition Bureau concluded that the transaction is unlikely to substantially lessen or prevent competition because other competitors offer similar products and services.
