Coriolis Capital Limited - Details

Company profile:

Coriolis Capital is a London-based hedge fund company specialising in Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS) – primarily Catastrophe Bonds, Collateralised Reinsurance and Retrocession and Weather Derivatives. We have one of the longest track records in the industry and also have extra experience as former proprietary traders. We are pioneers in the industry and have been involved in all ILS products (except life settlements) since their inception.

Coriolis was founded following a friendly management buyout from Société Générale, the French bank. The group has been together for more than 15 years, while the two Principals have worked together for over 25 years. The Principals and traders have a substantial portion of their wealth co-invested in the funds and most employees are shareholders in the firm. Today, Société Générale continues to act as the administrator, trustee and independent valuation agent to the Coriolis funds.

Our deep understanding of the insurance/reinsurance business together with our experience allows us to avoid large drawdowns and avoid the use of sidepockets. We understand where and when the best risk/return opportunities are for investors.

By investing in the whole range of ILS products, we are able to offer a wide range of funds to match clients’ criteria. Our involvement in Weather Derivatives makes us unique from our competitors. We provide very detailed, transparent and punctual monthly reports and are even able to provide unofficial daily estimates thanks to our sophisticated proprietary models.
