UBS recommends maintaining ILS exposure, notes weather analysis key at mid-year

UBS Hedge Fund Solutions, a division of UBS Asset Management focused on managing and advising on a range of alternative assets for clients, has recommended maintaining exposure to insurance-linked securities (ILS), but in what could be a nod to hurricane season forecasts, noted that weather analysis is key around the reinsurance renewals this year.

It’s important to note that this commentary comes from the UBS Hedge Fund Solutions group, not the specialist ILS investment arm that UBS acquired with the Credit Suisse deal.

So the commentary comes from a unit that leverages ILS as a diversifying asset within broader portfolios of alternatives and fixed income instruments, rather than a manager of dedicated ILS funds.
