Yields trended higher in the first quarter of 2021.

Investors appear to be focused on the government’s pandemic-related stimulus and vaccination programs, and are questioning inflation expectations and the implications for real yields.

Despite this yield environment, we believe insurers continue to face challenging prospects. Rates are still low on a historical basis and negative in many parts of the world/curve.
