Leadenhall Capital Partners LLP, the London headquartered insurance and reinsurance linked investment manager, has become the fifth specialist ILS fund manager to join the Standards Board for Alternative Investments (SBAI) as a signatory.
Leadenhall Capital Partners was established in 2008 as a joint-venture investment fund manager between its experienced management team and re/insurer MS Amlin, with a sole focus on insurance and reinsurance linked investing.
The manager, which has around $5.5 billion of reinsurance linked assets under management, provides institutional investors with access to the returns of both life and non-life insurance risks, through a range of investment funds or managed accounts.
As a signatory to the SBAI, ILS and reinsurance linked investment manager Leadenhall demonstrates its commitment to improving the alternative investment industry and also to the Standards, a code of best practice for alternative investment managers and hedge funds.
In joining as signatories, investment managers commit to standards of practice designed to demonstrate responsible fiduciary duty to investors.
As a signatory, Leadenhall will benefit from access to a network of industry events, and the chance to help shape the standards going forwards, providing input and feedback on initiatives to implement common processes across the sector.
It also enables the investment manager to demonstrate to potential investors that it adopts responsible standards of investment practice.
Leadenhall Capital Partners signed up to the Standards Board for Alternative Investments (SBAI) in August, joining other ILS asset managers AlphaCat Managers, Elementum Advisors, Hiscox Re Insurance-Linked Strategies and Nephila Capital in showing their commitment to maintain standards in alternative investing.
