ILS fund manager attracts $1.1bn in investor capital

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

Integral ILS Ltd, the Bermudian-based independent insurance-linked securities fund manager, has surpassed $1.1 billion of investor capital deployed, the company announced today.

The firm also said it had raised more than $1.4 billion since its founding in July 2020.

Over the past year, the firm said it had received several new commitments from institutional investors in addition to increased allocations from its cornerstone investors, New Holland Capital and the Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP Investments).

New Holland Capital is a New York City-based alternative investment manager and PSP Investments is a Canadian Crown corporation.

Integral's investing strategy is primarily focused on catastrophe-linked insurance and reinsurance transactions, and benefits from in-house risk origination capabilities and comprehensive access via strategic partnerships with TransRe and Amwins, the company said.

Richard Lowther, Integral co-founder and managing partner, said: "Our AuM growth is a testament to the demand we've seen among sophisticated institutional investors to add catastrophic risk to their portfolios, especially those looking for alternatives to fixed income and credit strategies."

Lixin Zeng, Integral co-founder and CIO, added: "We have long believed that institutional investors with long-term time horizons have a structural advantage when it comes to holding catastrophic risk exposures, and we're pleased to see continued investor interest in our bespoke strategy."

Scott Radke, CEO of New Holland Capital, said: "Integral has an exciting market opportunity, as current pricing in the market has reignited interest from institutional investors that have historically avoided catastrophe risk assets. We're enthusiastic about their specialised, investor-friendly approach to the market, and we look forward to our ongoing partnership with the Integral team as they continue to scale."
