NB ILS focuses on capturing natural event risk premium through a diversified portfolio of insurance-linked investments in catastrophe risk markets
Team proactively identifies new opportunities to take advantage of short-term dislocations and monitors key short-term risk parameters to seek to optimize risk and return profile
Deep backgrounds in climate science, risk modeling, underwriting, and portfolio management, coupled with ten-year track record
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.
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.
