The report examines asset allocation to fixed income and other asset classes within U.S. insurers’ general account investment portfolios in light of the sharply lower interest rate environment in 2020. It details asset classes, strategies, and vehicles that insurers are considering and—if they employ outside investment management—how they are using unaffiliated managers to source and oversee investments.
The report also examines the extent to which consultants are gaining acceptance among insurance general accounts and where opportunity exists for them to further penetrate this market. Finally, the report offers insight into what resources third-party insurance asset managers are bringing to tap growing opportunities in insurance asset management, and also reviews the influence of private equity and alternatives managers that continue to seek insurance assets through mergers and acquisitions.
