Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management - Details
With EUR 1.16 trillion of assets under management (as of March 31, 2015), Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management is one of the world’s leading investment organizations. Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management offers individuals and institutions traditional and alternative investments across all major asset classes. It also provides tailored wealth management solutions and private banking services to high-net-worth individuals and family offices.
Team size and structure:The ILS investment team at Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management is led by Roger Douglas and Michael Amori. Amori previously headed up longevity risk transfer group at Deutsche Bank, where he led teams involved in a number of billion dollar longevity swap transactions. The wider team has ILS experience, capital markets expertise, as well as reinsurance underwriting and broking skills.
Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management intends to provide investor clients with a range of products in the ILS asset class. Deutsche AWM’s ILS strategies will not purely focus on catastrophe risks. The firm intends to target property and casualty risks, as well as mortality and longevity risk investments.
Currently the Deutsche AWM ILS team has around $100m of insurance-linked assets under management, Artemis understands, with the majority deployed into private ILS transactions across both non-life and life risks.
The Deutsche AWM ILS fund is said to be underweight catastrophe bonds, compared to the broader ILS fund industry, as it finds private ILS better for diversification and offering a wider choice of counterparties and structural features such as triggers attachment levels.
An initial launch ILS strategy was seeded by specialist alternative asset class multi-manager business Tages Capital, which has approximately $2.4 billion of assets under management.
