Sumitomo Life: to increase yen bond buying in Oct-March

TOKYO, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Japan's Sumitomo Life Insurance plans to increase yen bond holdings in the six months to March, while taking a more cautious stance on foreign bonds, a senior official said on Wednesday.

Sumitomo, Japan's fourth-largest life insurer, increased its foreign bond holdings in April-September but kept full currency hedging on them, the official said.
