KBRA Releases Research - Investing (Still) in the Age of COVID-19: A Highly Experienced Panel Weighs In

·2 min read

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) was the panel moderator at the inaugural Prospectus 2021 conference on November 18-21, one in a new series of reinsurance and insurance-linked securities (ILS) industry events held by Artemis and Reinsurance News. The panel consisted of three highly experienced investors whose firms collectively manage around $300 billion of insurance company assets.

The panel discussion was not the typical year-end review and sector outlook for the coming year. Instead, panelists shared their insights during a period marked by the most consequential U.S. elections in years and against the backdrop of a still-raging pandemic and recent breakthrough vaccine announcements. Additionally, considering the record low fixed income yields, tight credit spreads, and an ever-growing opportunity set, the fundamental crosscurrents heading into 2021 are formidable.

That said, our panelists saw plenty of ways to find value for their insurance company clients in an ever-expanding investment opportunity set.
