The core elements of our strategy are outlined on the left hand side of the slide, which is to develop our Asia opportunity to the fullest, to shift away from guaranteed business to non-guaranteed business in our wealth businesses throughout the world, to continue to build our core balance foundation of our franchise in Canada and in the U.S. to shift to some higher ROE and lower risk businesses.The result of that strategic repositioning will be a company whose earnings are less volatile, whose growth rates are more sustainable and consistent and a company that has a better risk profile. We do acknowledge as we execute this strategy, that we do have some headwinds of continuing low interest environments throughout the world, as well as a great deal of uncertainty about the regulatory capital environment in which we will have to operate in the years ahead. Nonetheless, our management objective remains the same, which is to deliver $4 billion of earnings in 2015 and an ROE of 13%.
