Coriolis Capital is a London-based fund manager, specialising in insurance and reinsurance linked securities (ILS) – primarily Catastrophe Bonds, Options, Collateralised Reinsurance and Weather Derivatives.
A pioneer in the ILS industry, Coriolis was founded in 2003 after the team organised a friendly management buy-out from Société Générale. Having started trading these ILS instruments in 1996 as proprietary traders and then as fund managers since 1999, our team has one of the longest track records in the industry and Coriolis funds have earned positive returns practically every year with minimal drawdowns.
We see this history as one of the reasons for our continued success; the group has been together for fourteen years, with no turnover of senior personnel. Our two principals have an even longer history however, having worked together for more than twenty five years, and it is this experience of working together and leading a team with aligned interests to their investors that we see as key to Coriolis’ success.
