Interview with Stefan Wattinger, ILS Product Specialist, Credit Suisse Insurance Linked Strategies Ltd
Stefan Wattinger joined the ILS team at Credit Suisse in April 2014 as a product specialist. Prior to joining Credit Suisse ILS, he was a relationship manager for institutional clients within Credit Suisse. Stefan holds a BSc in Banking and Finance from Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW).
The Credit Suisse’s Insurance Linked Strategies (ILS) team has one of the longest track records in ILS dating back to 2003 when core members of the team first managed ILS funds at Bank Leu (later named Clariden Leu), a former Credit Suisse Group subsidiary.
In late 2006, the team moved to Credit Suisse Group and joined Credit Suisse Asset Management to focus on institutional investors. Since then, the team has developed a successful ILS platform and offers a wide range of insurance related products focusing mainly on natural catastrophes.
