TORONTO – Sun Life Financial has a deal to sell its U.S. annuity unit and certain life insurance businesses for US$1.35 billion to Delaware Life Holdings, a company owned by shareholders of Guggenheim Partners.

The U.S. annuity business has been challenging for Sun Life and other Canadian insurance companies in recent year, due to a combination of low interest rates and a substantial increase in the amount of capital required by regulators.
