BEIJING -- China Life Insurance Co Ltd, China's largest provider of life insurance, said Thursday that its net profits for the first three quarters this year dropped 33 percent year-on-year to 16.72 billion yuan ($2.63 billion).
In the third quarter alone, the company's profit declined 45.7 percent to 3.75 billion yuan, said China Life in a statement filing to the Shanghai Stock Exchange.
Earnings per share stood at 0.13 yuan in the third quarter, down 45.7 percent from a year ago, it said.
The company said the decline in profit was a result of decreasing investment returns and losses from asset impairment.
