Alte Leipziger increases equities share of investment portfolio
German mutual Alte Leipziger/Hallesche has increased the equities component in its €16bn ($20.15bn) investment portfolio to
5% from zero at the beginning of the year, and has plans to double that to 10%, despite Solvency II imposing a capital charge
on such investments,
