Genworth Says Sustained Low Rates to Pressure Operating Earnings

February 06, 2013

The reduction, which takes hedges into account, will probably be about 7 cents this year and 11 cents in 2014, according to a projection by the Richmond, Virginia-based insurer today in a presentation on its website.
