Blue Capital Alternative Income Fund : BCAI (formerly Blue Capital Global Reinsurance : BCGR) provides investors with the opportunity to access the global catastrophe reinsurance market, and to invest in an alternative asset class whose returns have historically been largely uncorrelated to those of other asset classes including global equities, bonds and hedge funds.
Blue Capital Alternative Income Fund aims to offer investors target returns of LIBOR+8% via a master fund (an underlying special purpose vehicle used to hold the investments), that invests in a broad range of reinsurance risks diversified by risk, geography and peril. It invests in over 1,500 different contracts from a variety of customers. The reinsurance industry is a largely US-dollar denominated one and so the fund’s returns are earned in US-dollars.
The fund is listed in both Bermuda and London. It is managed by Blue Capital Management Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sompo International. The master fund in which it invests is Blue Capital Global Reinsurance SA‐1. This is a segregated account within Blue Water Master Fund Ltd., an exempted Bermuda mutual fund segregated accounts company. The master fund invests in contracts originally underwritten by a variety of professional underwriters.
