Applying the prudent person principle to Multi-Strategy Fixed Income
Capital preservation, predictable returns and diversification benefits have kept fixed income front of mind for insurers. This is unsurprising given the heavy regulatory demands and requirement to match liabilities they face. However, exceptional monetary policy measures have fundamentally changed the rules of the game – risk on traditional fixed income is rising.
For further information on the risks and risk profiles of individuals strategies, please refer to the relevant documentation.
Alternative Income assets are significantly less liquid than assets traded on public markets. Where funds are invested in infrastructure/real estate, investors may not be able to switch or cash in an investment when they want because infrastructure may not always be readily saleable. If this is the case, we may defer a request to redeem the investment.
Years of experience optimising insurance portfolios, bringing together knowledge from the insurance and asset management worlds.
