Schroders Capital has achieved a significant milestone in its growth trajectory, with the management of insurance-linked securities (ILS) assets surpassing the $5 billion mark.

Operating across a diverse range of ILS instrument types and risk exposures, Schroders Capital has solidified its position as one of the largest catastrophe bond managers in the industry. The firm's product offerings, including funds such as the UCITS Schroder GAIA Cat Bond and the Luxembourg FCP Schroder IF Flexible Cat Bond fund, cater to a wide array of investors globally. Moreover, with the recent launch of a fund vehicle targeting US investors, Schroders Capital continues to expand its reach across different investor segments.

Backed by a team of 37 highly specialized investment professionals, Schroders Capital's ILS division boasts a track record of nearly 15 years of exceptional performance, consistently leading its category.

Last October, Schroders Capital announced the establishment of its Private Debt and Credit Alternatives business, which encompasses expertise in global credit and debt markets, including ILS. This business segment currently manages assets exceeding $30 billion.

In response to the growth of the ILS business, Schroders Capital has appointed Daniel Ineichen and Flavio Matter as Co-Heads of ILS. Both Ineichen and Matter bring extensive experience to their roles and will report to Stephan Ruoff, Co-Head of Private Debt and Credit Alternatives. Additionally, Ruoff has been named Chairman of ILS, retaining oversight of the team's operations.

Schroders Capital's achievement of surpassing the $5 billion milestone in ILS assets underscores its continued commitment to delivering value to investors through innovative and diversified investment strategies. As the firm expands its presence in the ILS market, the appointments of Ineichen and Matter signal a strategic move to further strengthen its leadership in this segment.

Portfolio diversification is key in an environment where investors are concerned about inflation and having to navigate higher rates for longer. Investors are clearly seeing the benefits of adding less correlated assets such as ILS in the context of a portfolio.

Fundamentals suggest that the attractive conditions for ILS investors will continue as yields and underlying risk premia remain very attractive as demand for insurance risk transfer remains high.

We are very pleased to have reached this milestone, which highlights the work of our team and our track record. Congratulations to Daniel and Flavio, who have been instrumental in driving the success of our business.
