Twelve Capital has entered into a new distribution arrangement for its range of insurance, reinsurance and catastrophe bond investment strategies with fund distribution consultancy Harrington Cooper.
The arrangement will see Harrington Cooper distributing the full range of Twelve Capital insurance and reinsurance linked investment products across the UK and in French-speaking Europe.
Twelve Capital, which has over $4.3 billion of ILS and insurance linked assets under management as of September 30th 2018, runs strategies across the insurance-linked investing space.
These include pure catastrophe bond funds, private insurance-linked securities (ILS) and collateralised reinsurance, insurance private debt, insurance equities, insurance bonds, as well as its Best Ideas portfolio that allocate across the full-range of insurance-linked assets.
Twelve Capital believes that the insurance sector remains an under-researched area of opportunity by asset managers and banks and sees the new distribution arrangement creating significant investment opportunities for its funds.
Philipp Graf, Managing Director, Global Distribution, of Twelve Capital, commented on the news, “Our partnership with Harrington Cooper will enable us to bring our specialised capabilities to a wider group of investors across the UK and French-speaking Europe. Our investors are predominantly based in Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands and Scandinavia and together with Harrington Cooper we aim to expand our investor base within Europe.”
Harry Dickinson, Managing Partner of Harrington Cooper, added, “We know that our investor base is always on the lookout for specialist funds to diversify their risk. We believe that Twelve Capital’s investment strategies can provide this, due to their low correlation to traditional risk assets and their focus on under-researched and often misunderstood asset classes. We look forward to raising assets for Twelve Capital across the UK and Europe.”
