Insight works closely with insurers to design comprehensive solutions that meet their specific investment requirements. We have a dedicated team of insurance specialists to provide tailored advice and support for our insurance clients.
We believe the answer to most insurers’ investment challenges lies in taking a liability-driven approach, which means focusing first on the key characteristics of the liabilities and then employing the most appropriate investment strategy given their investment objectives and constraints, paying due regard to the insurance capital and accounting frameworks.
With our broad range of specialist investment capabilities in liability-driven investment, fixed income, absolute return, multi-asset and derivative risk management, we believe that we have all the relevant building blocks to help achieve our clients’ desired outcomes and support their investment challenges in this extended period of low interest rates.
