TORONTO (Reuters) - Manulife Financial Corp (MFC.TO: Quote), Canada's biggest life insurer, would consider share buy-backs and expects a "pause" in acquisition activity, Chief Executive Donald Guloien said on Thursday.

"Given that we've done most of the things that we want to do on the acquisition front, we'll have to take a look at stock buy-backs," Guloien said at the Scotiabank Financials Summit in Toronto.
