Independent Auditor's Report on Summary Consolidated Financial Statements

To the Policyholders of LS Mutual Management

Opinion

The summary consolidated financial statements, which comprise the summary consolidated statement of financial position as at December 31, 2018, the summary consolidated statements of earnings, comprehensive income and changes in equity for the year then ended and the notes to summary consolidated financial statements, are derived from the audited consolidated financial statements of LS Mutual Management for the year ended December 31, 2018.

In our opinion, the accompanying summary consolidated financial statements are a fair summary of the audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Summary consolidated financial statements

The summary consolidated financial statements do not contain all the disclosures required by International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Reading the summary consolidated financial statements and the auditor's report thereon, therefore, is not a substitute for reading the audited consolidated financial statements and the auditor's report thereon. The summary consolidated financial statements and the audited consolidated financial statements do not reflect the effects of events that occurred subsequent to the date of our report on the audited consolidated financial statements.

Audited consolidated financial statements and our report thereon

We expressed an unmodified audit opinion on the audited consolidated financial statements in our report dated February 26, 2019.

Management's responsibility for the summary consolidated financial statements

Management is responsible for the preparation of the summary consolidated financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Auditor's responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on whether the summary consolidated financial statements are a fair summary of the audited consolidated financial statements based on our procedures, which were conducted in accordance with Canadian Auditing Standard (CAS) 810, Engagements to Report on Summary Financial Statements.
