About Us

We are insurance asset management people, plain and simple. That made naming of our firm fairly easy.

During our years in asset management, we realized that there were no publications dedicated solely to our industry ‐ a $30 trillion global market, $7 trillion in the U.S. alone. So, we set out to provide a source of unbiased thought leadership through articles, podcasts and webcasts. We want to cut through the noise by providing timely and topical information from the best in the business.

Having been in your shoes, we understand that managing assets for insurance companies is different than all other institutional investor classes. We know that outperforming requires superior investment management skills paired with the ability to navigate the labyrinth of insurance-centric requirements. That’s why we built the Insurance AUM Journal ‐ to bring thought leadership to our community.

Thank you for your readership and support. We always welcome your suggestions for how we can get better. Just email us at editor@insuranceaum.com
