Alternative Capital

The emergence of a $30bn global marketplace for insurance-linked securities has served as evidence of the increasingly prominent role third-party capital now plays in risk transfer. Over the medium to long-term this sector is expected to continue its growth as investors take advantage of the low correlation insurance has with other asset classes.
