Insurers are facing an extremely challenging interest rate environment in 2020, forcing general accounts to look beyond core fixed-income holdings. With rates at all-time lows and great economic uncertainty, insurers need to find diversified sources of yield and income while also considering the credit risks embedded in current portfolios.

This presentation addresses:

  • How insurers plan to mitigate this challenging environment

  • Which asset classes, strategies, and vehicles insurers are considering

  • How insurers are using unaffiliated managers to source and oversee investments

  • Industry consolidation and the drivers for private equity merger and acquisition activity
