Life Companies

Our expertise in asset management and servicing dates back to 1939, when we provided the official book of record and the entire back office support function to the Irish Life Assurance company. Since then, we have extended this service to encompass a broad array of domestic and international life and general insurance companies.

We provide a full range of asset management and asset servicing options to life and general insurance companies, incorporating our indexed, quantitative and risk-management strategies. Our investment strategies aim to deliver on your key objectives, which may include:

  • maximising the persistency experience of the book
  • optimal cost structures
  • customer satisfaction and a positive relative performance experience

Not only do we provide a tailored, best-in-class investment offering, we also deliver a full end-to-end back-office, administration and financial reporting solution. It incorporates:

  • flexible and scalable administration systems – delivering fund pricing, settlement, reconciliation and corporate actions services
  • comprehensive financial reporting, including integrated regulatory and solvency II capability
  • the ability to deliver an integrated and low-cost custody solution
  • participation in stock lending programmes, as required

Our approach

Our asset management and fund servicing capabilities are a core part of our business. They enable our partners to leverage the ongoing reinvestment and expansion of our operational and fund management capabilities to enhance their own businesses and client solutions. This also assists partners in meeting their regulatory requirements.

We provide a full range of investment management, back and middle office services, which are designed to provide operational flexibility to our clients. Our scalable and flexible infrastructure and proven investment operations expertise supports a variety of processes and investment solutions, including:

  • Innovative investment solutions
  • Flexible fund structures
  • Transaction processing
  • Valuation and pricing services
  • Integrated financial and regulatory reporting services

Rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach, we build tailored solutions for all our life and general insurance clients. From concept design to implementation, we deliver our integrated solutions using a best-in-class on-boarding and project framework.
