Interview: Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS)
A Valuable Tool for Investors Seeking Yield and Diversification
Insurance-linked securities have historically provided investors with low correlations to traditional asset classes and currently offer the most attractive yields we’ve seen in the last seven to eight years. In a world characterized by falling rates,
flattening yield curves, and where traditional tools for diversification are in question, investors are increasingly looking to ILS as a solution in their asset allocations.
Join Stephan Ruoff, the head of Schroders’ ILS team, as we
demystify the Insurance-Linked Securities market, shed light on why market dynamics mean today is an attractive entry point to the asset class, and discuss opportunities we see across the markets.
This event is in partnership with our Key Alliance Partner, Schroders.
