The Voice of Connecticut’s Hedge Fund
& investment Advisor Community
As central banks around the world pull back from their crisis era interventions and rates begin to move higher, will global markets will be entering a more normalized phase? If the answer is yes, then we believe that such an environment is conducive to hedge funds (the true active managers) and that as time goes by hedge fund management and active management will become synonymous terms.
Insurance companies around the world had $23 trillion in assets on their balance sheets at the end of 2016, according to research by the Insurance Asset Outsourcing Exchange. Of that total, nearly $2 trillion is outsourced to independent money managers. We expect that this amount will increase as returns in long equities become harder to secure.
Global insurance companies comprise one of the largest blocks of institutional investors, and one that we believe will be growing in importance to alternative investment managers. Some of you may have seen the news this month announcing that Blackstone Group was ramping up its insurance company coverage group.
Please join us on for our first members meeting of 2018, as we shine a spotlight on the insurance segment with two large global insurance firms, Axis Capital and Sompo International in a conversation about asset allocation and manager selection, all expertly moderated by Albourne America, one of the worlds few alternative investment consulting firms.
Speaker: Jay Madia, Head of Risk Assets at AXIS Capital
Speaker: John H Reilly, Senior Vice President within the Investment Group at Sompo International
Moderated by: Arabella Wuchek, Client Relationship Manager for Albourne
Several of the hedge fund industry's top managers trained under legendary investor, Julian Robertson at Tiger Management. When these managers started their own firms, they were collectively referred to as the "Tiger Cubs", and several of them formed the nucleus of the Greenwich hedge fund community. The act of creative destruction (phenomenon) is playing out once again, as highly trained former managers of Tudor Investment Corp., have set out on their own to create the next generation of hedge fund firms … the "Tudor Cubs"...

Hedge fund industry assets under management are at an all-time high and yet it has never been harder to grow your business. The hedge fund industry has undergone a paradigm shift in its investor base. In the early days, high net worth investors made up the majority of the LP class. In the past decade, institutional investors have become the dominant force.
