JOHANNESBURG, Dec 5 (Reuters) - South Africa’s biggest insurer Sanlam saw its normalised headline earnings fall 10 percent for the 10 months to October, it said on Wednesday.
That compared with a 22 percent rise during the first 10 months of 2017. Sanlam attributed the decline to a 55 percent fall in its net investment return.
