Payden & Rygel strengthens insurance investment team

Investment advisor Payden & Rygel has expanded its London-based insurance investment team with the appointment of Niall Clifford as senior vice president.

Clifford, a fellow of the Institute of Actuaries in the UK, joined Payden from Mercer, where he was a principal in its insurance solutions team. He brings over twenty years of experience working with sophisticated insurance companies to Payden’s broader insurance investment team.

Clifford will collaborate with institutional investors to create bespoke solutions designed to enhance investment results by leveraging Payden’s spectrum of customised strategies. He will focus particularly on helping insurance companies improve their risk-adjusted returns in line with their risk appetite, capital position, and accounting and liquidity considerations.

Eric Delomier, director at Payden & Rygel, said: “Payden has maintained strong and active relationships within the insurance sector for many years and manages over $26 billion in specialised mandates. Most recently, we were proud to have been selected by Lloyd’s of London to manage a new USD Enhanced Yield Liquidity Fund – the first liquid fixed income strategy available on Lloyd’s investment platform. Niall’s in-depth actuarial expertise makes an important contribution to the strength of our insurance-investment team.”

With interest rates as they are, this is an exciting time to be working with one of the leading providers of fixed-income solutions to the institutional investment community.”
