Captive insurance company investment programs seldom receive the level of attention deserved. Since investments represent the vast majority of assets on a Captive’s balance sheet, Management should pay a level of attention to their investment program that equals that of their focus on liabilities, (e.g. claims, underweighting, reinsurance and other operational activities). Arguably, Captives often place too much responsibility for their investment programs on outside vendors and need to better understand, take more control and provide better oversight of the investment function.
This course will cover areas such as basic investment concepts, investment plans, the constituents involved in plan design and in the investment program, the importance of asset liability management, keys to a successful investment program, understanding performance measurement, and modifying investment programs in accordance with various lifecycle stages.
Key course takeaways:
- Differentiate between insurance asset management and investment management
- Design efficient and appropriate investment plans
- Optimize strategic asset allocations
- Select and evaluate investment managers
- Monitor and revise captive investment programs
