Review Report


Introduction | We have reviewed the accompanying condensed financial statements (consolidated statement of income, consolidated statement of comprehensive income, consolidated balance sheet, consolidated statement of cash flow, consolidated statement of changes in equity and notes to the consolidated financial statements) of Swiss Life Group for the period ended 30 June 2009. The Board of Directors is responsible for the preparation and presentation of these condensed financial statements in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 “Interim Financial Reporting”. Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on these condensed financial statements based on our review.

Scope of Review | We conducted our review in accordance with Swiss Auditing Standard 910 and International Standard on Review Engagements 2410, “Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity”. A review of interim financial information consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with Swiss Auditing Standards and International Standards on Auditing and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

Conclusion | Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the accompanying condensed financial statements are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 “Interim Financial Reporting”.
