Deutsche Bank’s Asset Management division named Best Insurance Asset Manager by Reactions Magazine

Wins Award for Third Consecutive Year

Deutsche Bank’s Asset Management division today announced that its insurance business, Deutsche Insurance Asset Management, has been awarded Best Asset Manager by Reactions, the financial magazine for the global insurance market.  The award is determined by the votes of C-suite executives of the major global firms in the insurance and reinsurance industry. This is the third consecutive year that Deutsche Insurance Asset Management has won this award.

The Reactions’ Global Awards highlight top-class service, performance and innovation within the global insurance industry. Reactions rewards the achievements of companies and individuals, and contributes to raising standards across the industry. They help firms differentiate themselves from competitors and show clients that they are, “a cut above the rest”. The awards were announced on Sept. 30, 2010 at a black tie ceremony in New York.

“We’re honored to have been named best asset manager by Reactions for a third time,” said Randy Brown, Global Head of Deutsche Insurance Asset Management. “One needs scale and a broad range of resources across geographies to manage assets for insurers. Beyond that, we strive to deliver the right solutions and best service for our clients. It’s very gratifying to see that our clients have recognized us in this way.”  

Brown added, “We continue to see outsourcings grow in 2010 as insurers struggle with earnings pressures, the low interest rate environment and heightened regulatory regimes. We remain focused on advising our clients as insurance specialists who understand their complex regulatory and accounting environment and how that impacts their investment portfolios.”

Deutsche Insurance Asset Management has been named among the world’s largest third-party manager of insurance portfolios. As at June 30, 20010, the business managed approximately $195.5 billion (€159.6 billion) of assets for clients worldwide (source: Deutsche Bank). Deutsche Insurance Asset Management’s dedicated insurance investment professionals are located in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific and invest across a full range of traditional and alternative strategies.
