Number of strategies (how many funds, sidecars or strategies):


Tenax ILS UCITS Fund

The Tenax ILS UCITS Fund invests in securities exposed to insurance risk, being primarily natural catastrophes such as hurricanes and earthquakes.

The fund takes long positions into Catastrophe Bonds, which are 144a securities issued by special purpose vehicles and providing coverage to the sponsoring re-insurance company against specific events.

The floating structure of the cat bond coupons provide a solid hedge against inflation and interest rate rise, while the returns uncorrelated to global financial markets add to the investment case.

The fund is managed by Massimo Figna and Marco della Giacoma.
