We focus on transforming insurance risks driven by events such as earthquakes, hurricanes or floods into investment products. We do this by transferring risk out of the traditional insurance sector into the capital markets for investors seeking alternative asset classes.
With a team of experts based mainly in and New York, we work closely with specialist funds and partners in many capacities in the Insurance Linked Securities markets. We act as both structurer and sponsor of Catastrophe Bonds, broking private placements between Allianz and capital market investors. We also act as a transformer between financial and insurance execution formats and as an investor.
