Genworth gets approval to sell Canadian unit stake to Brookfield

(Reuters) - Canadian regulators have approved the sale of Genworth Financial Inc's <GNW.N> majority stake in its Canadian unit to asset manager Brookfield Business Partners <BBU_u.TO>, the companies said on Monday.

Genworth said in October that regulators were scrutinizing the sale of its 57% stake in Genworth MI Canada Inc <MIC.TO> for about C$2.4 billion ($1.81 billion).

The deal agreed to in August was aimed at completing the U.S. insurer's long-delayed sale to China Oceanwide Holdings Group Co Ltd.

The stake sale is expected to be completed on Dec. 12, the companies said on Monday.
