After-Tax Returns: Investment Strategies for Property & Casualty Insurers Post Tax Reform

After-Tax Returns: Investment Strategies for Property & Casualty Insurers Post Tax Reform

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 ushered in several changes in U.S. tax law and generally is supportive of property and casualty (P&C) insurers. However, the law also limited the advantage of tax-exempt municipal bonds, a long-time staple of P&C investment portfolios. In a period when bond spreads are at extremely tight levels and equity values are near all-time highs, insurers are seeking new ideas to generate additional yield without taking on significant risk.

Conning’s webinar “After-Tax Returns: Investment Strategies for P&C Insurers Post Tax Reform” features four of our investment professionals offering investment ideas that may help insurers in their search for enhanced yields and additional diversification while also maintaining – and possibly improving – portfolio credit quality. Our team highlights:

  • The impact of reduced exposure to tax-exempt municipal bonds
  • The opportunities in taxable municipal bonds, as well as CLOs, privately placed corporate bonds and structured securities
  • How these strategies, coupled with Conning’s deep experience in managing insurance assets, may benefit P&C portfolios
