Since the launch of our flagship fund in 2005, Securis Investment Partners LLP has established itself as one of the larger Insurance Linked Securities managers globally.*
Basing its operation in the heart of London’s insurance district it benefits from being in close proximity to the insurance broking and underwriting communities and their service providers. With offices in Bermuda and presence in several countries around the world the firm is ideally placed to access the broadest range of investment opportunities and gather intelligence relating to sector developments.
The overall goal is to deliver capital appreciation, low volatility and low correlation to traditional asset classes by investing in insurance related assets and in particular Insurance Linked Securities. Securis' view is that the market for investing in insurance-related risks will continue to grow as insurance carriers increasingly seek to outsource such risk to the capital markets in order to optimise their own balance sheet structures and returns. We believe the best way to take advantage of that development is to have a focused, pure insurance strategy with a long term investment horizon.
The investment strategy is diversified by:
- type of peril
- type of instrument
In order to cater for different investor preferences we have funds with different target returns, liquidity profiles and investment focus. We divide our strategies into private and public ILS, further split into Life and Non-Life. Our core strategy builds a portfolio of ILS investments that aim to provide investors with a stable return over long periods of time.
