Recognized for “Best Stress Test Scenario Package”

HARTFORD, CT – June 24, 2020 — Leading global investment management firm Conning today was named “Insurance Asset Manager of the Year” and awarded “Best Stress Test Scenario Package” in the 2020 InsuranceERM Americas Awards.


The “Insurance Asset Manager of the Year” award is intended to recognize an asset manager for not only excellent returns, but also for creating tailored offerings to meet the special needs of the insurance industry, according to InsuranceERM. The "Best Stress Test Scenario Package" award is intended to highlight technology that helps insurers with strategic decision-making and provides insights that may result in better risk-adjusted performance as well as meeting regulatory requirements.

“We are extremely proud of these awards as we think they offer independent validation of our value proposition to insurers,” said Woody Bradford, Conning CEO and Chair of the Board. “Our team has a thorough understanding of the unique needs of insurance companies and takes great pride in developing highly customized solutions. We have also leveraged our client and industry knowledge to develop a proprietary technology platform that helps insurers evaluate and manage risks across their enterprises.”


The judges noted Conning’s commitment to providing a level of service and expertise not commonly available to small and mid-size insurers, particularly regarding access to strategic asset allocation tools and a broad range of asset classes. They also noted Conning’s ability to maintain a high level of communications through the COVID-19 pandemic.
