Leadenhall Value Insurance Linked Investments Fund PLC

The Fund focuses solely on non-life insurance linked investments and is expected to be invested predominantly in the natural catastrophe arena. Our strategy is to assemble a portfolio which attempts to optimise the risk reward balance, within the targeted risk parameters of the Fund.

The strategy seeks to avoid diversifying investments with minimal returns, which could affect the overall profitability of the portfolio, with as a result a degree of concentration of risk in those perils, areas and transactions which offer the best risk/reward conditions.

We use a portfolio approach and specialist software to monitor the correlation between existing and potential new investments to ensure full exposure per event is constantly monitored and optimised via trading and hedging. A cornerstone of our portfolio management strategy is to track attractively priced assets and to exploit market opportunities through opportunistic trading.

Our strategy is to assemble a portfolio which attempts to optimise the risk reward balance, within the targeted risk parameters of the Fund.
