Investing in the catastrophe market is increasingly being sought out by investors keen on uncorrelated income streams, explains Ana Haurie, executive group managing director at Dexion Capital plc & Dexion Capital (Guernsey) Limited.
Resonance Asset Management, an alternative asset management firm founded by industry veteran Nick Wood, has raised £35m in assets for its inaugural wind energy income fund.
Investment gains from listed hedge funds focused on credit have comfortably outpaced those from listed peers concentrating on other asset classes, as flexible investment approaches to corporate bonds are favoured in a climate of dizzying prices.
DGC IRIS, the Guernsey based closed ended investment company listed in London this past week via a £40m placing, has taken Dexion Capital past the $10bn level in fund raising activities.
Guernsey-based fund administration and management firm Dexion has named Robin Fuller as an executive director.
Dexion Capital is floating DCG IRIS on the London Stock Exchange, which will invest in a portfolio of insurance-linked strategies managed by Credit Suittse.
The announcement today that Dexion Capital is the only adviser and placing agent for listing one of the hedge industry's flagship funds is only the latest in a series of wins for the diversified fund servicing boutique.
