Which enormous UK insurer is backing a nuclear fusion start-up?

It’s a tough nut to crack, but if one start-up being backed by a UK insurance juggernaut finds the answer to harness nuclear fusion, it’s bound to make a noise.

Less explosive, but just as innovative, is the forestry, and insurance-linked securities investments made by another European insurance giant.

In conversation with these and other insurers, and on the back of research into insurers outsourcing their investments by insurance Risk Data, we found that the current environment has pushed insurers towards some exotic investments - some even as far afield as nuclear power research.

Join us at the conference to hear about these opportunities. Europe’s largest insurers will reveal which fascinating investment pies they have their fingers in next week, at a panel of the Insurance Asset Risk EMEA conference. Join us on 19 and 20 October, and take part in a discussion group on the topic.
