Stone Ridge Reinsurance Risk Premium Interval Fund

Stone Ridge Reinsurance Risk Premium Interval Fund is a unique closed-end investment fund with a primary objective to achieve long-term capital appreciation.

The Fund’s primary focus is to invest in reinsurance-related securities as this is seen as vital in reaching investment objectives. The Fund will mainly invest in Quota Share Notes and event-linked securities, and a significant portion of the Fund’s portfolio will be invested in high yield, high risk securities.

The ‘Interval’ aspect of the fund is essentially a hybrid financial investment strategy. An interval fund enables periodic share repurchases for investors, as a means of providing liquidity. This is done so the fund can access a higher amount of illiquid investments – to ensure the collateral is accounted for.

Stone Ridge defines the date & time investors can move in and out of the fund. The interval fund will offer investor access to more illiquid reinsurance investments which usually boast a higher return.

Typically the interval fund will benefit investors with a more long-term investment plan while still providing the opportunity to cash out in advance.

Type of investment strategy (fund, sidecar etc):

Mutual fund
