Nick Martin, manager of the Polar Capital Global Insurance fund, tells us why the fund has performed so well over 5 and 10 years, and is up about 19% even in the tumultuous markets of 2022. He shares why the need to maintain ‘dull and boring balance sheets’ has benefitted insurance companies and how appropriately priced insurance products can help move the planet to a greener future.

He also lets us know how the insurance industry uses nature as a risk prevention partner, how he believes that insurance is the oil that greases the wheels of world trade, and additionally gives his opinion on how a shift in perception of the world of insurance will benefit the industry and markets as a whole.

The content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. However, the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
