De-risking investment strategies


Insight Investment is a global investment manager committed to a single goal: partnering with our clients to help them achieve their objectives with the greatest certainty. To serve this goal, our investment platform focuses on risk-management solutions, including liability-driven investing (LDI), cashflow-driven investing (CDI) and longevity hedging; a full spectrum fixed income capability; and a range of multi-asset and absolute return strategies.

We have a history of challenging the status quo where we believe this in the best interests of our clients. As an example, at first glance, a pensioner buy-in may appear to be a step towards a full buy-out by securing payments for some scheme members. However, in the context of the whole scheme, a buy-in may result in a riskier asset strategy and lower hedge ratio, extending the time it takes to achieve a full buy-out. It is therefore critical that we help schemes fully consider overall value for money, the impact on total portfolio and whether flexibility has been retained to deal with risks that are not easily hedged when considering de-risking options.
