Insurance Linked Securities

Investment in Insurance Linked Securities (ILS) gives new chances in achieving yields well above LIBOR-rates. The connected risks are not to be neglected. However, the non-correlation to more conventional investments is an important advantage for balancing the portfolio of institutional investors.

An overview of our consulting activity in this field can be found in our 1/02 Newsletter (in German).

Some further information is given in a short conclusion of a lecture (in German) hold at Bank Sarasin (one of Switzerland's leading private banking institutions).
