Aug 10 (Reuters) - Canadian insurer Sun Life Financial reported a near 34 percent drop in quarterly profit, hurt by volatile equity markets following the Brexit vote and low interest rates.
Sun Life's net income fell to C$480 million ($368 million), or 78 Canadian cents per share, in the second quarter ended June 30, from C$726 million, or C$1.18 per share, a year earlier.
The company's underlying net income, which excludes the impact of interest rates and equity market movements, fell to C$554 million, or 90 Canadian cents per share, from C$615 million, or C$1 per share.
