Great-West Lifeco Inc. GWO-T says net earnings for its first quarter were $595-million, down more than 55 per centfrom $1.3-billion a year earlier.

The Winnipeg-based insurer says base earnings for the quarter ended March 31 were $808-million, up more than 13 per cent from $712-million the same quarter a year ago.

Diluted earnings per share were 64 cents, down from $1.43 a year earlier.

The company attributed the decline in net earnings in part to losses in non-fixed income assets and effects from changing interest rates.

It said that the increase in base earnings was driven in part by recent acquisitions.

Great-West Lifeco acquired the retirement business of Prudential Financial Inc. in April 2022.
