Swan Re targets 20% ROE using reinsurance premium floatJan 23 2014 1 Comment
Randy Swan is Founder of Swan Wealth Advisors, an SEC-registered RIA that has used their low-risk “Defined Risk Strategy” (DRS) to generate +9% annualized returns for investors since 1997. The structured strategy utilizes options for downside protection, an instrument that Swan likens to be “investment insurance” which investors should use in the same way that people use insurance in everyday life. During three of the last four down years of the S&P 500 (2000 - 2002 and 2008), Swan’s DRS strategy yielded positive returns (up to 12%). In 2008 when the S&P 500 dove 37%, the Defined Risk Strategy protected capital with a modest drawdown of only -4.5%. Adding up those four years, the S&P lost over 80% while DRS was positive by over 18%. For more information on Swan click here.
This Opalesque.TV interview profiles the launch of Swan Reinsurance, and why a reinsurance company can create higher ROE's in a tax efficient manner by investing the equity invested plus the additional premium dollars charged for reinsurance in Swan’s Defined Risk Strategy. Although reinsurance is considered risky by some managers and investors, Swan Reinsurance can limit liability by not only utilizing its proven Defined Risk downside protection strategy, but by defining contractual limits for the insurance business the firm is underwriting.
Swan Reinsurance does not underwrite catastrophe risk (earthquake, hurricane), it only underwrites predictable high frequency, low risk areas such as workers compensation. These types of reinsurance are “high frequency” because they have lots of small claims and a long history which can be more easily quantified, making them much more predictable.
