Although we have seen significant developments in the ILS space over the past decade it is our opinion that the insurance industry is at an early stage of a transformation which will continue to see a significant shift in insurance risks from companies’ balance sheets to the capital markets. This presents investors with a unique opportunity to obtain exposure to a previously hard to access asset class that offers an attractive risk reward in addition to low correlation to most other investment strategies. Our strategy is to carry exposure to insurance risks, diversified across non-correlated insurance perils in different geographical areas.
The Securis team is specifically built around these investment objectives. Over the past decade, Securis has built an institutional quality platform employing a diverse team that includes investment professionals with extensive capital markets experience, actuarial knowledge and insurance/re-insurance expertise. Applying proprietary statistical and actuarial models, the firm offers a wide range of products with varying target returns and risk profiles. Our flagship Securis I Fund, for instance, has a broad investment mandate within which we particularly focus on private transactions, both in the life and non-life sectors. These investments allow the fund to access opportunities that are not easily available to other investors and contain a uniqueness which is a direct result of our ability to influence the structure, pricing and timing of the opportunity through negotiations.
Combining strong actuarial and statistical skills with significant insurance and capital markets experience, using risk management as an integral part of the investment process, maintaining an excellent operational platform Securis is well placed to deliver long term investment performance of the highest quality to its investors. The end result is an efficient infrastructure that allows us to identify and access investment opportunities, monitor and manage market and business risks, keeping good operational procedures/processes and supplying our clients with transparency and quality reporting.
