At a recent conference discussing pension funds and liabilities the advice was clear; in the current economic climate make efforts to de-risk by diversifying into alternative asset classes. The good news is that one of those assets mentioned was catastrophe bonds, which despite the recent catastrophe losses (which may or may not have triggered a cat bond) are still seen as a safer haven for fund and hedge managers.
