Conning & Company and Ramius Alternative Solutions LLC Announce Strategic Alliance

Conning & Company and Ramius Alternative Solutions LLC announced that they have entered into a strategic alliance. The two firms are jointly developing a variety of alternative investment strategies to meet the specific needs of insurance companies. Conning and Ramius Alternative Solutions believe that certain strategies traditionally employed by hedge funds may enhance the risk-adjusted returns and diversification of institutional portfolios. Conning and Ramius Alternative Solutions are developing tailored strategies for insurers that utilize a variety of liquid instruments created in recent years that are designed to produce returns that have low correlations to existing client portfolios. This unique approach provides exposure to sources of return traditionally available only to investors in hedge funds but with significantly lower fees and capital charges as well as greater transparency and liquidity. The two firms plan to leverage Conning's expertise in insurance asset management and strategic asset allocation with Ramius Alternative Solutions' extensive experience in alternative asset strategies. Client strategies will be overseen by an investment committee consisting of senior professionals from both firms.
