Investment Policy & Guidelines

Strategic Asset Alliance’s approach to insurance investment policy leads Partner Clients to proactively manage the entire investment process on stronger, less volatile investment income.

At SAA, we review your insurer’s policy to make sure that it encompasses the ‘best practices’ of the insurance industry. This is not a static process, as SAA updates Partner Clients with the latest issues impacting insurer investments and how other insurers are successfully addressing these issues within their policy.

While only SAA Partners receive a “best practices” review, insurers can stay updated on the latest investment issues with the benefits of an SAA Membership.

New investment alternatives, changing regulatory and rating agency biases, and changing business conditions mean that, if you have not reviewed your investment policy in the last year, a “best practices” review is in order.

Why a Periodic “Best Practices” Review is Critical for Insurers

o   Provides peace of mind that the policy is relevant to today’s capital markets and
the unique requirements of your insurer.
o   Protects your insurer from the managers taking actions that have been a
problem in other cases.
