Partnership at Work®

What do you look for in an investment management firm? A comprehensive range of investment services? A committed team of investment, insurance and investment accounting professionals? The combination of talent and technology to help your firm to achieve its goals?

With client service a cornerstone of our business model, we take a partnership approach to complement your capabilities and help achieve your business objectives.

For fixed income portfolios, our strategy seeks to maximize risk adjusted returns — mindful of a designated risk level, and sensitive to your operating needs and income constraints.

Core Asset Management

Our goal is to provide competitive total rates of return over a market cycle, while generating stable and rising levels of net investment income. We’re proud of our track record of performance for our clients, on both an absolute and risk-adjusted basis. (Past performance is not indicative of future performance.)

For fixed income portfolios, we manage mandates in major currencies across multiple sectors, including:

  • Sovereigns / Quasi-Governments
  • Corporate Bonds / Covered Bonds
  • Agency and Non-Agency Mortgage-Backed Securities
  • Collateralized Mortgage Obligations
  • Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities
  • Asset Backed Securities
  • Municipal Bonds

Wide Range of Asset Management Experience

In addition to core fixed income, we manage mandates in a variety of asset classes such as:
  • Equities
  • TIPS (Treasury Inflation Protected Securities)
  • Preferred Stocks
  • Structured Securities
NEAM: Insurance focused asset management

Our Enterprise Capital Return and Risk Management® (ECRRM™) services provide the framework and key analytics to help achieve your financial goals by embracing:

  • Capital structure and allocation
  • Asset allocation
  • Product mix and design
  • Reinsurance structures
  • Acquisitions and divestitures

Built for the Insurance Industry

Our enterprise-based framework is designed to meet the differing needs of insurance companies. From globally diversified, multi-product publicly traded companies to U.S.-domiciled, mono-line mutual companies, our framework is built for the insurance industry and can be leveraged to analyze your unique balance sheets and investment portfolios.

Solutions can be developed in Statutory, GAAP and IFRS frameworks, reflecting the incidence of taxes as well as rating agency, regulatory and solvency related risk-based capital considerations. Through optimization, enterprise simulation and stress testing we can get a better picture of your specific investment needs.

Crafting Your Financial Goals

Using our proprietary Enterprise Based Asset Allocation™ (EBAA™) process, we tailor our asset allocation recommendations to align with your unique requirements. This process leads to your company’s recommended investment guidelines and investment performance benchmarks. These are based on prospective capital market returns and product margins, their volatilities, correlations, operating and financial leverage and client-specific business constraints and enterprise risk tolerances.
