We focus on insurance investments covering the entire insurance balance sheet, including Insurance Bonds, Insurance Private Debt, Catastrophe Bonds, Private Insurance-Linked Securities and Equity.

The investment objectives for our ILS strategies can be summarized as follows:

  • Offer investments which exhibit low correlation to all major traditional asset classes
  • Deliver stable and attractive risk-adjusted returns
  • Provide best possible downside protection while at the same time generating consistent and sustainable out-performance
  • Offer to investors a level of liquidity commensurate to the underlying assets

Twelve Capital believes that achieving stable, sustainable absolute returns require deep industry knowledge combined with superior sourcing, analysis and pricing competencies as well as portfolio and risk management capabilities.

Our investors benefit from our team’s significant experience in the insurance sector as well as capital markets, including in-depth expertise in deal sourcing, analytics, structuring and risk management.
