Thinking outside the box: Using ILS to complement fixed income


Beat Holliger
Head of Product Management, ILS

Alternatives Director


Despite strong YTD returns, traditional fixed income faces headwinds, including credit risk, duration risk, and low/negative yields. ILS, however, offers the opportunity to access attractive yield and a return profile not correlated with these risks. In an environment where diversification is critically important, ILS and cat bonds in general can serve as a ballast during future periods of market dislocation.
