The Pulse: Investing in the late cycle - security vs yield in the alternative credit space

10 September 2019 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Skinners Hall


The Pulse is our quarterly afternoon event focused on the practicalities of portfolio management, providing insightful market intelligence and deep-dive fresh perspectives to help insurance investment teams navigate key challenges today.

This quarter, we continue our focus on the practicalities of addressing the challenges of Investing in the late cycle. Alternative credit has become a popular phrase in recent years, promising yield and better returns on capital, though it also comes with added complexity and scrutiny. As the cycle shifts, the scrutiny will only increase while the complexity may hide within it as yet unappreciated risks.

Zooming in on specific asset classes, we examine new thinking and different approaches on the alternative credit front to finding yield in today’s environment, without sacrificing on security. How are today’s dynamics impacting these asset classes, where are the opportunities and what are the new evolving structures as insurers seek to balance yield and resilience in an increasingly important part of the portfolio?

This event is ideal for members of your team and wider organisation focused on the fixed income portfolio, asset allocation, risk management and ALM. Please feel free to forward onto any of your colleagues who may find this of interest.
