Our CFA led team of investment managers combines over 70 years’ experience in investment management and ensures the best performance of invested portfolios.
Robert Pires (Chief Investment Strategist and Chief Executive Officer) and Mark Melvin (Chief Investment Analyst and Chief Operating Officer) have experience in managing multi-million dollar portfolios, having both worked for the Bermuda Monetary Authority, as well as with well-known investment management firms in the Americas, Europe, and the Pacific Rim.
Since 1991, BIAS has been structuring and managing captive insurers’ portfolios. BIAS will work with you to ensure optimal income generation while controlling risks and meeting expected payout requirements.
Captives face several risks such as captive’s liquidity, currency, interest rate, credit and operational risks. Asset Liability Management is the process BIAS uses to identify and manage captive’s risks, and to maximize results.
Strategies applied to manage captive’s risks include the selection of only single-A rated or better bonds for credit risk control, the elimination of currency risk by maintaining assets in the currency of expected claims, or the matching of individual asset duration against the timing of expected claims to minimize interest rate risks.
Each quarter, we provide clients with a comprehensive reporting package denominated in any currency, and an optional face-to-face portfolio review with managers and plan sponsors. 3 times a year, we hold a quarterly market briefing in Bermuda and in Cayman, where we outline recent research as well as our latest insights into future prospects for financial markets.
