Enhanced Duration Pooled Funds



Nexus Risk Management and KBSH Capital Management Inc. broadened the Asset Liability Management services they provide to the pension and life insurance industry by offering Enhanced Duration Pooled Funds strategies to manage interest rate risk and optimize return. The available fixed income securities do not to provide sufficient interest rate exposure or yield for insurance companies and pension plan sponsors. Companies may be left with material interest rate mismatches which extend far beyond their risk tolerances. An Enhanced Duration Pooled Fund uses a combination of high quality government bonds and plain vanilla interest rate swaps along with a dynamic rebalancing strategy to allow companies to:


  • Significantly increase duration to manage interest rate risk exposure,
  • Simplify the internal asset management mandate, and
  • Increase return on a risk-adjusted basis.
