How can insurers access alternative investments?

Yesterday's thinking is no longer enough to achieve today's investment goals.

This article was produced by Invesco as part of their valued industry partnership to Insurance Investor.

As the long-term return expectations across traditional markets decline, navigating the markets is becoming ever more challenging. From the impact of rising inflation and seemingly endless rate hikes, to the challenge of tackling climate change, we know insurers' long-term investment obligations require forward thinking.

Alternative investments offer the opportunity to diversify away from traditional asset classes, thus providing the opportunity to generate an uncorrelated return profile, through exposure to investments with differentiated growth drivers.

In this video, Charles Moussier, Head of Insurance Investment Solutions, shares his thoughts on the reasons why insurers should consider increasing their alternatives exposure and how Invesco could partner with insurers to create custom solutions. Charles will cover the big questions facing insurers, including: 

  • What challenges do insurers face when investing in the alternatives market?
  • Which asset classes should insurers favour today (and why)?
  • How can insurers better integrate solvency and liquidity constraints in their portfolio?

The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested.
