Working with over 200 insurance companies gives us in-depth insight into the market challenges and opportunities.
Our dedicated insurance team has an on-the-ground presence in all the major European countries, and can provide detailed advice on how to optimise the performance of your assets in the face of the stringent Europe-wide regulations and local accounting practices that apply to your investments.
We provide a range of investment products and solutions that match the needs of our insurance company clients. For example, our European and global loans portfolios enable you to achieve an attractive yield while helping finance the long-term development of the economies in which you operate. Our core developed market equity strategies are a popular choice with our insurance clients to help them meet their liabilities, while our alternative fixed income strategies provide you with sophisticated access to the global bond markets that you may not be able to achieve in-house. We also provide an extensive range of effective cash-management solutions.
The Solvency II directive has imposed a lot of constraints on insurance companies, but we can find innovative ways to get round the new challenges you face as a result. For example, our Liability-Driven Investments team has built a customised solution to manage the solvency capital ratio of one of our insurance clients’ European equities portfolio – with no adverse effect on its long-term return potential.
Solvency II has also imposed exacting requirements when it comes to risk reporting. We can provide customised solvency capital ratio reporting down to the level of the individual holding, so you can be sure you have full transparency on the market risk of each security you invest in for your SCR calculations.
