US municipal bonds for European insurers

European insurers are increasingly considering infrastructure debt
European insurers are increasingly considering infrastructure debt

European investors continue to face low yields in the investment grade universe and are looking for additional sources of return and diversification.

A rising number of European insurers consider infrastructure debt to be an attractive option. But the investment opportunities in Europe are rare. Hence, European-based insurers may wish to consider US municipal bonds because they provide:

  1. a source of long-dated maturities
  2. relative value compared to corporate bonds
  3. a source of diversification
  4. potential for higher yields than comparable public debt
  5. access to publicly available US infrastructure debt
  6. high-credit quality
