JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African insurer Discovery said on Tuesday its profit for the six months to Dec. 31 were likely to fall by between 5% and 15%, mainly due to a negative impact from interest rate changes and foreign currency losses.

The insurer said its headline earnings per share - the main profit measure in South Africa - would be between 296.1 cents($0.2022) and 264.9 cents, compared to 311.7 cents reported a year earlier.
