ILS Capital believes attractive absolute and risk-adjusted returns can be generated regardless of industry losses through the construction of a diversified portfolio of property and specialty reinsurance contracts and investments. The firm has expertise in underwriting property, crop, offshore energy, marine, onshore energy, aviation and aerospace lines of business.

ILS Capital’s 1609 Fund Ltd., launched on January 1, 2014, offers investors short duration, attractive returns that are fundamentally uncorrelated with traditional asset classes through a diversified, unlevered portfolio of direct reinsurance exposure. The Fund generates returns by investing in collateralized reinsurance contracts across geographic boundaries and lines of business including property, marine, energy, crop, aviation, aerospace and weather. Thoughtful contract selection and tactical sector allocation, coupled with portfolio management analytics, enable the Fund to capture yield and attractive risk-adjusted returns.
