13:10 - 13:40 Alternatives for cash management in volatile times

Door Russell Baird, Head of UK Investment Solutions, Aegon Asset Management

Market volatility and uncertainty has recently put a lot of pressure on insurers’ cash positions, with increasing margin requirements for interest rate swaps only further complicating the situation. Managing cash allocations, to provide an effective balance between generating a return on investments and risk, whilst also respecting short-term liquidity and collateral requirements thus continues to be a major challenge. In this session, Russell Baird will address three key questions: (1) Does my current cash allocation meet my investment goals? (2) Can I allocate more to higher yielding assets to avoid a cash drag? (3) What alternative asset classes can offer me a more attractive risk-return profile?
