High Yield for Insurance Companies: For Everything There is a Season

Dec. 07, 2020

MetLife Investment Management’s Lara Devieux, CFA, Head of Insurance Advisory & Solutions, was featured in Insurance AUM Journal, discussing high yield as a strategy for insurance companies.

High yield corporate bonds and bank loans, while comprising only a relatively small part of investment portfolios, are core asset classes within many insurers’ strategic asset allocation frameworks.  However, given the higher risk nature of high yield with significant downgrade activity in 2020, insurance companies should consider many factors when assessing the optimal exposure and evaluating new investments in the asset class.
