LIMA, June 1 (Reuters) - Peruvian holding company Intercorp said on Thursday it had reached an agreement to buy the local insurance and mortgage administration businesses of Colombia's Sura Asset Management for a base price of $268 million.
The deal is subject to approval by Peru's banking and insurance regulator, Intercorp said in a statement.
"This transaction will allow Intercorp to strengthen its position in the life annuity and individual life insurance market, consolidating it as a leader in diversified financial services in Peru," the statement said.
