Camradata signs up latest insurance clients for investment data service

RELATED TOPICS​

Investment information specialist Camradata has extended its reach into the insurance market by signing up new clients for its data service.



With 200 insurance companies already on board, Camradata reported continuing strong interest as the service enables them to assess the performance of insurance asset managers in an accessible and transparent way, free of charge.

Following this year’s insurance seminar in Bermuda, Camradata signed up insurers including captive owner Caitlin-Morgan.

Vice president Chris Murray says: “Using Camradata Live means we can evaluate the performance of asset managers on an individual basis, against each other and across asset classes.

“It helps us look at the market from both ends of the telescope: taking a broad view – seeing what’s on the horizon – together with the ability to uncover specific and detailed individual investment performance.

“The value for insurers is this objective perspective. Whatever we want to compare is clearly laid out with current and relevant information.”

Insurance investment manager Sage Advisory Services has also adopted the service.

Camradata is already an established presence in the institutional pensions market, where it enables pension funds to assess the performance of asset managers with a series of products and services.

More than 600 institutional investors – 200 insurance companies, 300 pension funds and nearly 100 investment consultants – use the database for manager research and selection, custom universes and qualitative and quantitative data sets.

Founder and managing director Steve Butler (pictured) says: “We are an established presence in the institutional investment world because our service is valuable day-to-day and as a crucial component of overall investment strategy and governance.
 
“We don’t see any other service like ours in the insurance industry. We are bringing together insurers and asset managers in a way that we know is very effective in the pensions market and in a format that gives our clients the view they need.”
