Stewart Foley, the head of U.S. Insurance Advisory for P-Solve, was recently quoted in Best’s Review in an article titled “The Search for Yield.”
Stew was consulted as an expert source on the topic of asset management and low interest rates. “60% of insurers added an assets class in response to low interest rates,” Foley told Best’s, drawing his information from a survey conducted by P-Solve earlier this year.
The article elaborated: “[My] clients are mostly diversifying into high yield bonds, bank loans, emerging market debt, and high dividend equities. P-Solve manages more than $13 billion for 175 clients in the United States and the United Kingdom, 27 of which are insurers (many are Lloyd’s syndicates), and also advises $47 billion of client assets.”
