Insight has a unique organisational focus on risk management solutions. We work with our clients to understand their real-life goals, and then seek to help them manage the risks associated with achieving those goals. To target the relevant risks requires in-depth expertise in the derivative markets. Our derivative overlay clients include insurers, defined contribution pension plans, wealth managers, sovereign wealth funds, and cashflow and liability-aware investors. Institutions can access our world-class capability to manage and modify their exposures to equity, interest rate and credit beta.

Regulatory collateral and liquidity management are component parts of the wider, holistic derivative overlay solution we provide to clients. We also offer money market and other liquid strategies to help our clients manage regulatory collateral efficiently.
