Taiwan's CTBC to buy Manulife's local asset - source
TAIPEI, July 31 (Reuters) - CTBC Financial Holding Co Ltd , the parent of Taiwan's top credit card issuer, will acquire the local insurance unit of Manulife Financial Corp for less than T$1 billion ($33 million), said a source with direct knowledge of the deal on Wednesday.
The deal marks the latest exit by a global financial company of the island's crowded life insurance market. AIG and New York Life are among those that have left the Taiwan market in recent years.
CTBC will hold a press conference later to give further details.
