Scott Quist, president of SNFC, said: “The economic environment within which we must operate continues to be very troubled. Of course we are gratified that we have maintained our revenues and increased our profitability during these times. This low interest rate environment continues to hamper life segment profitability and assuming moderately rising interest rates in the near future such increases would hamper mortgage segment profitability.”
