Blue Capital Alternative Income Fund Limited - Update research from QuotedData

Wind-blown, but still standing
Blue Capital Alternative Income's (BCAI's) net asset value declined by 24.8% during 2017 (including dividends). BCAI's manager says that the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, which accounts for most of the fall, was perhaps a one in 33-year event and that BCAI's losses are in line with its internal projections for such a scenario. BCAI now has less capital to deploy although, with insured losses estimated by Munich Re at $135bn globally, this also applies to other reinsurers. This has resulted in increased rates (prices) for the January 2018 reinsurance contract renewal season and the manager projects an 8%-13% return for 2018.
