Twelve Capital expands cooperation with Bank Sarasin for Insurance-linked securities


Twelve Capital is expanding its cooperation with Bank Sarasin for Insurance-linked securities (ILS). Under the cooperation, Twelve Capital acts as investment manager for a set of Sarasin-branded products dedicated to Insurance-linked securities (ILS). ILS are increasingly becoming of interest to investors because of their attractive return levels as well as their low correlation to other asset classes.

The ILS offering is an addition to a recently launched fund exploiting opportunities in the market for European subordinated insurance bonds. This fund was started in September and has reached an investment volume of close to CHF 100m. European insurance bonds are viewed as particularly attractive given the upcoming change of solvency rules for insurance companies.

"We are very pleased that with Twelve Capital we have been able to win a truly valuable partner with enormous expertise in the insurance segment. Both investment themes, insurance bonds as well as ILS are an interesting complement of Sarasin’s fund offering”, says Nils Ossenbrink, Head Products of Bank Sarasin & Co. Ltd.

Urs Ramseier (pictured), Managing Partner of Twelve Capital AG, says: “We are proud to announce this cooperation. For Twelve Capital, becoming a strategic partner to Bank Sarasin for our key investment themes is a further important milestone for our company and testament to our standing as a leading provider of insurance-related investment solutions.”
