RE/INSURANCE-LINKED ASSETS ARE DISTINCTIVE

Re/insurance-linked assets are financial innovations at the intersection of the insurance industry and  capital markets. While the natural catastrophe subsector has existed for nearly 20 years, the bulk of this sector is still a rapidly growing, under-invested asset class that presents attractive opportunities for investment for those with expertise in the sector. Re/insurance-linked assets are distinguished by low correlation to the financial markets and most other asset classes.

HSCM BERMUDA APPROACH TO SOURCING

HSCM Bermuda will ensure it sees the fullest array of re/insurance linked investment opportunities by sourcing from three different channels.

  • Proprietary: With 260+ years of combined experience in the Reinsurance sector, HSCM Bermuda has strong relationships with issuers of risk and is active in identifying gaps in the market to structure and execute investments which are not circulated to the broader market.
  • Non-proprietary: HSCM Bermuda maintains a dialogue with the major brokers and banks in the market. We expect to work with a broker or intermediary on many transactions, and to draw on the data, modeling and contract resources that they can offer.
  • Platform: HSCM Bermuda seeks investment opportunities that will allow us to use the investment as a source or vehicle for future investments.
