Strategy:

Mercury specialises in Industry Loss Warranties (ILW), a segment of the reinsurance market that avoids most of the data and model risk associated with Ultimate Net Loss risk transfer solutions.

Mercury manages the only index tracking fund in the sector. The MiCRIX Tracker Fund offers investors transparent exposure to a pre-defined portfolio of natural catastrophe insurance risks. The fund, representing a diversified strategy, is available either hedged or unhedged.

Mercury also offers managed accounts for investors with different portfolio requirements. These accounts may be significantly less diversified than the index fund.
