Insurance-Linked Strategies: State of the Market 2023
(4:23) Peter Miller, Senior Vice President on the Insurance-Linked Strategies team, discusses the current dislocation in the Insurance-Linked Securities market and what this could mean for investors.
Investment Principles
The NB ILS team seeks to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns that are demonstrably uncorrelated with traditional asset classes.
Focus on Low Correlation to Traditional Asset Classes
Invest in insurance-linked securities, such as industry loss warranties, that are based on occurrence of large scale, low probability natural events and are independent of financial markets.
Active Management of the Portfolio
We employ a risk-centric, rather than a return-target approach, and actively manage risk by sourcing new opportunities, monitoring key short-term risk parameters and taking advantage of short-term dislocations.
Leverage Best-in-Class Resources
Utilize the broad resources of Neuberger Berman, such as finance, operations, legal and risk teams for operational support as well as the alternative investments, insurance solutions, big data and research teams for additional due diligence insights.
