Ryan Labs enhanced lineup of institutional investment solutions with overlay strategies

RELATED TOPICS​

Ryan Labs Asset Management has broadened its base of institutional investment solutions with the introduction of customised overlay strategies for defined benefit pension plans and other institutional clients.

Ryan Labs Asset Management specializes in liability driven investing (LDI) and total return fixed income strategies, and has consistently outperformed its benchmarks across both LDIi and total returnii platforms. Their LDI solutions are actively managed and are customised to meet the unique goals of its clients. With the introduction of overlay strategies, they are bringing even deeper capabilities to help clients meet their pension obligations and achieve their investment goals.

"We're excited to bring this new range of solutions to our clients," Ryan Labs Asset Management's Senior Vice President of Applied Strategy and Overlay, Chris Adair (pictured), says. "One of the primary reasons for becoming part of the Sun Life Investment Management group of companies in 2015 was to expand our platform, capabilities and the solutions we can offer to clients, while maintaining our existing investment strategies. The overlay investment team manages approximately USD43 billion of the Sun Life Financial group of companies' portfolio in overlay positions in interest rates, foreign exchange, and equities (as of March 31, 2016). This group has depth, experience and expertise in designing, implementing and managing overlay strategies, and provides a robust complement to our existing product offerings."

Overlay strategies use a variety of investment tools – such as swaps, swaptions, options, and futures – to gain, offset or substitute specific portfolio exposures beyond those provided by the actual underlying portfolio assets. These strategies continue to grow in use and importance as institutional investors, including pension plans, seek ways to manage risks and enhance returns to meet their obligations.
